Benjamin recorded the number of glasses of juice he sold in his neighborhood each day in this tally chart. Which day has the same number of tally marks as Monday?

Each individual tally mark represents one person. Four tally marks with a line through them represents five people. This means that the tally marks for Monday represent two drinks. Benjamin sold two glasses of juice on Monday.

The tally marks on Tuesday represent five and four. Adding these numbers gives us nine. Therefore, Benjamin sold nine glasses of juice on Tuesday. Benjamin sold one glass of juice on Wednesday. He sold four glasses of juice on Thursday. And finally, he sold two glasses of juice on Friday.

We were asked to work out which day has the same number of tally marks as Monday. On Monday, Benjamin sold two glasses of juice. The other day in which he also sold two glasses of juice was Friday.

We can therefore conclude that Friday has the same number of tally marks as Monday.
