  1. Petals Around the Rose SOLUTION
    The “rose” is the center dot on any face of a die that has one (1, 3 and 5) and the “petals” are all dots around it. So, the 1 die face has no petals, the 3 die face has two petals and the 5 die face has four petals. The dice faces without center dots (2, 4 and 6) do not count since they don’t have a “rose”. Counting the total petal dots yields the number of petals around the rose.
