1A: Solutions to WRONG + WRONG = RIGHT:

12734+12734=25468 12867+12867=25734 12938+12938=25876
24153+24153=48306

24765+24765=49530 25173+25173=50346 25193+25193=50386
25418+25418=50836

25438+25438=50876 25469+25469=50938 25734+25734=51468
25867+25867=51734

2. Wilda's Swamp Water

Wilda Witchen is planning a party. She wants **EXACTLY** 8
quibits of swamp water for her haunted swap diarama. Before you can
ask her what a quibit is, she hands you 2 containers and shoves you out
the door. As you head to the swamp you notice one container is marked
10 quibits and the other is marked 6 quibits. The swamp is a 10 minute
walk from Wilda's house and since it will be getting dark soon, you want
to get the swamp water and return to Wilda's house as soon as possible.

2A. Explain the steps you will take to measure out the exact amount of swamp water Wilda has requested.
