    one boy collected 1009 & one boy collected 1010

    Step-by-step explanation:

    The question is simply dividing 2019 by 2, which equals 1009.5, however, its impossible to collect. 5 of a can, therefore one had to collect one more then the other

    They collected about 1010 cans each

    Step-by-step explanation:

    x = number of cans each boy collected

    (they collected the same number)

    harold cans + brother cans = 2019

    x+x = 2019

    2x = 2019

    divide by 2

    x = 1009.5

    They collected about 1010 cans each

    you could say they collected about 1009 cans each.
