# A message from Patrick- 30th March 2020

Hello Indigo class!

I hope you have all had a good weekend!

I’m just looking at some of the first entries for the MyMaths task that I set yesterday and I just want to remind you to get the denominators the same when comparing fractions. Also, when finding equivalent fractions, whatever you do to the numerator must be done to the denominator. There is some brilliant work going on though!

Right now, however, I am thinking of a number… Below, I have given some facts about that number which is between 1 and 100. Ask some more questions in the comment section and see if you can deduce what it is. You can not ask any more ‘greater than’, ‘less than’ or individual digits questions. From the facts written below (and using the 1-100 grid to eliminate answers) try to find out what the number is:

• It is greater than 55.
• It is even.
 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 29 30 31 32 33 34 35 36 37 38 39 40 41 42 43 44 45 46 47 48 49 50 51 52 53 54 55 56 57 58 59 60 61 62 63 64 65 66 67 68 69 70 71 72 73 74 75 76 77 78 79 80 81 82 83 84 85 86 87 88 89 90 91 92 93 94 95 96 97 98 99 100

As you can see, there is not nearly enough information. Ask some more questions below and I will give you yes or no answers.

I hope that your stories are coming along nicely. If you want me to look over any drafts then please do email them through and they will get sent to me to look at.

I am missing you all and hope you are all staying safe. Make sure you are being helpful around the house and are being appreciative of your adults. Looking forward to hearing from you.

Speak soon,

Patrick
