It's a hot summer day, and Eric the Sheep is at the end of a line of sheep waiting to be shorn. There are 50 sheep in front of him. Being an impatient sort of sheep, though, every time the shearer takes a sheep from the front of the line to be shorn, Eric sneaks up two places in line.

Task: Kerri is a contestant in a school spell-a-thon. A contestant receives 3 points for every word spelled correctly. Because of a technical penalty, Kerri loses 5 points. She now has 19 points. How many words has Kerri spelled correctly? Model the problem with algebra tiles and then use the tiles to solve the problem. How can you use the algebra tiles to verify your solution?
