Math question? How many mice?

You buy one mouse, each mouse can have babies every two months, giving birth to an average of four. It takes one month for each to reach adulthood.

In twelve months, how many will you have?

you have 12 months, so minus one month till it reaches adulthood, so you have 11 months. it can have 4 babies a month so 11x4 or 44 babies and 1 mom, so 45.

but that is just for the first mom. each mouse will have 4 babies every month.

Only one

You need two mice to make babies, but you are starting with just one

easy its 96 heres how i got it

4 x 12 = 48 48 x 2 = 96

simple right
47 i think?
