**Circle Sums - Solve for Values of Unknowns**

**Teacher Notes**

Circle Sums show three-by-three grids of circles that contain either letters that represent unknown quantities or numbers. Arrows point to sums of rows and columns. For example, in Row 1, , and in Column 1, . Students use grid relationships to figure out the values of the letters. Each grid contains three different letters and one number. Note: There is often more than one solution path.

**Solutions**
