    I think that you found out that there are 155 red flags and 775 blue flags, altogether there are 930 flags. Great job!

      Good! – We knew that there were 930 flags altogether, AND that there were 5 times as many Blue flags as Red flags…

    What an exciting way to solve this problem! In your model, does one part red flags and five parts blue flags make up the six parts all together? Is that why you used six?
