Oh, i guess that you are almost talking about the diffrent technique about problem solving known as G R E S A . but i will answer as the question says.
"What are asked to look for?" That is actually known as the required.
Required- 12 flowers, 3 flowers, and again 3 flowers.
"What are the given?
Given- "How many flowers are left to Wilma?"
"What is the first step?, What is the second step?" I will compile both the first step and the second step because it is called equation
Equation- 12 - 3 - 3= n You will add both the two 3's together. Then you will take away or minus the sum of the two 3's to the 12.
"Solve?" Ok i will do from what i explained from the equation.
Solution- 3 12
+ 3 - 6
"What is the complete answer?"
Answer- of course its shown, its 6
