Maths Mate Term 2 Sheet 5 Problem 23

The problem solving question said Bobby’s car uses 9 litres of fuel per 100 km. And how many litres are required to travel from Kogan to Tingura?

The distance Kogan to Tingura is 400 km and you need to find out how many litres you need if you travel 400 km. I got 36 litres.

You can just do 100 km x 4 = 400 km and 9 litres x 4= 36 litres so thats how I completed the problem solving question.

Waking up in Brazil

I decided, for once, to go somewhere new.  Instead of my usual trip to Italy, I decided to go Brazil to  watch the soccer.  I only had one ticket to join the crowd at the big match.  I could hear the people cheer loudly ” Aussie, Aussie, Aussie, Oi, Oi, Oi!!”   After the big game I had a rest until the sun went down.

When I woke up in my hotel, my head was throbbing and I was so confused.  I looked out the window and it didn’t look like I was in Brazil-then I realised it was all a dream.  I closed my eyes again …

… but where could I go next? ….

Maths Mate Term 2 Sheet 4 Problem 23

This problem solving equation was trying to find the missing numbers and to find the answer.

Some numbers were missing so I had to find out what that were. The equation was 347 + 247 + 147 which equals 741.

The 7 was the missing number for 347. No missing number for 247 the 4 was the missing number for 147 and for the answer 741 the 7 was that missing number.

So I started at the ones 7 + 7 + 7 which equals 21 so I put the one down and carried the two. Then I moved onto the tens 2 + 4 + 4 + 4 which equals 14 so I put the four in the number 147 and carried the one in the hundreds . 1 + 3 + 2 + 1 which equals 7 so I was right the answer is 741 and thats how I figured out that problem solving equation.


The newsagent

One day I saw this man at the newsagents working. His name was Jerry, and he was yelling at a customer who he thought had stole something.  I was surprised someone would come in and just steal in broad daylight, with the staff  right there.

Jerry screamed, “Hey, what are ya doing, Mister?”

The customer replied  “But ah ped fer it errlier. I jest pepped beck to peck it ep.”

Some of the words sounded like a foreign language.  I asked the customer what country he was from.

He replied, “Australia, wherre are ya fro, matey?”

Red faced I left the newsagent quietly.

Maths Mate Term 2 Sheet 2 Problem 24

This problem was a times table problem on the first line numbers were 9,5,6 second line numbers were 3,27,15,18. Next line numbers 7,63,35,42 and last line numbers 5,45,25 and 30 I found out the numbers that were blank from the 9 x what =27 I got 3 I kept doing that with the other numbers until I finished it and thats how I figured out this problem solving question.

The Crime Scene

Today we attended the crime scene to investigate the death of the bee.  We saw it’s leg was broken, and we took photos to report back to our detectives. We thought that the bee could have stung a person and died as a result.  Or, it could have flown into an outside table and was knocked out.  But that doesn’t explain the broken leg! Maybe the bee was going in a direction and its leg might have hit something. Perhaps it was fighting another creature.  It seems that the bee didn’t win, anyway.
