Question: There are these polar bears. And one day they decide to go fishing. So they go out on the ice, they cut a hole, and they sit around it. They catch 2 Karp and 7 Blue Gill. They say, that was some good fishing. Let's roll the dice. They role a 4 and a 3. How many polar bears were there?
Answer: Look at a die. If the "polar bears" cut a hole in the ice, it would be in the center. Every mark around the center represents a polar bear. So if they roll a 4 and a 3, there are six total marks around the center. A mark in the center does not count.
