## Hockey attendance

One of our math expectations from an earlier unit was to solve real-life problems involving the magnitude of numbers up to 10 000. This week's math challenge is an open problem (problem with many possible solutions or ways to solve) related to this expectation.

The number of people at one hockey game was 1438 more than the number at another hockey game. How many people might have been at each game? Do you think they were NHL games?
