Bon Appetit: Everything Food - At Sea & In Port (2-14-23) A Valentine's Day Sprinkles Cake...And A Little Mathematics

Bon Appetit

Sprinkles hiding inside this cake will brighten up Valentine's Day for cadets and crew members aboard the TS Kennedy.  Once the cake was frosted and cut, I couldn’t help but notice the sweet mathematics lesson right before my eyes. 

How many pieces of cake are on the tray?   Use addition, multiplication, or a combination of the two operations to solve this problem. 

Explain how you found your answer.

Happy Valentine’s Day!
