  1. 5; There are 3 fewer symbols after the Jet’s name than after the Lion’s name. The FACT tells us that the Jets have 15 fewer basketballs than the Lions. So 3 symbols equal 15 basketballs. Each symbol stands for \begin{align*}15 \div 3\end{align*}, or 5 basketballs.
  2. 2; There are 4 more symbols after Faye’s name than after Don’s name. The FACT tells us that Faye has 8 more balloons than Don. So 4 symbols equal 8 balloons. Each symbol stands for \begin{align*}168 \div 4\end{align*}, or 2 balloons.
  3. 10; There are 3 more symbols after Ken’s name than after Henry’s name. The FACT tells us that Ken has 30 more bugs than Henry. So 3 symbols equal 30 bugs. Each symbol stands for \begin{align*}30 \div 3\end{align*}, or 10 bugs.
