This Application Problem is a part of the Lesson 11, Unit 6, Grade 1. Ben sharpened 5 pencils. He has 8 more unsharpened pencils than sharpened pencils. How many unsharpened pencils does Ben have? Today's comparison with bigger unknown poses the additional challenge that there is only one person in the story. If students are still struggling with comparison problem types, consider altering the problem so that two students' pencils are being compared.
