I would love an answer from an Expert too. I can't understand the
OG's explanation at all.
However, here is how I solved the answer, and that was pretty simple. Hence the reason why I have doubts about my logic.
We are asked:"For each of the following classrooms, select More staff if more classroom staff members were assigned to that classroom on the
Monday of Week 3 than on the Monday of Week 2. Otherwise, select Same/fewer staff"
We are told: "The classroom assignment and daily fee paid to CCC for each child
are determined by the child's age on Friday of the previous week."
My understanding: we can assume that on the Monday of any week, we have the same number of child than on the previous Friday of that week.
==> The number of child on the Monday of Week 2 = the number of child on the Friday of Week 1
==> The number of child on the Monday of Week 3 = the number of child on the Friday of Week 2
Solve: therefore, we need to determine if the change in the number of child from Week 2 to Week 3 will have an impact on the required number of staff.
==> For the "TWOs" ==> Monday Week 2 = 9 and Friday Week 2 = 6 ==> Monday Week 3 will be 6 =
Same/Few Staff==> For the "THREEs" ==> Monday Week 2 = 15 and Friday Week 2 = 12 ==> Monday Week 3 will be 12 =
Same/Few Staff==> For the "FourFives" ==> Monday Week 2 = 12 and Friday Week 2 = 8 ==> Monday Week 3 will be 8 =
Same/Few StaffIn essence, for all 3 groups we will have less kids on the Monday of Week 3 than on the Monday of Week 2. At this point, we don't care about the ratios of staff to children, we just know the required number of staff will be the same or less. Hope this helps!
