First lets pick out the data from the word problem, There are __9 crayons__ and __3 children__. The problem wants us to figure out how many ways we can distrubute the crayons to the children. Each crayon can go to 1 child and there are 9 crayons, so there are 9 x 3 = **27** possible ways to destrbute the crayons. If this is confusing or you have any questions feel free to ask!
