I have a 2nd-grader and I am trying to help him with his math work but I think I might be making things a lot more complicated than they need to be. The question asks:
Meg needs _ books to have as many as Kate.
Now I think instead of books, it should have said more books, being that Kate has more books than Meg. Does the word "more" give this sentence a different meaning or am I over-thinking this question?
