Maths puzzle!

Good afternoon all!

 

I hope you all had a relaxing half term break and enjoyed some time in the sun admiring all the lovely plants and flowers!

 

Welcome to summer 2! I can’t believe it is the last term of the year! 😭

 

I thought I would challenge you to a maths puzzle.

Read the instructions carefully!

You can email your answers or post on the blog.

 

 

Have fun and keep safe!😊

    Hi Miss Essor, This number puzzle was little bit challenging. The answers are:
    1. 5 Go carts and 4 tricycles. (5×5 =25) + (3×4=12) . If you add 25 and 12, altogether 37 wheels.
    OR
    2.9 Tricycles and 2 Go carts. (3×9 =27) + (5×2) = 10). If you add 27 and 10 altogether 37 wheels.

      Great job Vihansa!

      It was definitely a different type of challenge. Sometimes questions like this writing thing on paper might help or doing some drawings to help represent the question!

      I like your use of multiplication to solve this!
      Great job 😊

  • Hi.
    I found 2 solutions.
    9×3=27
    2×5=10
    10+27=37
    9 tricycles and 2 go-carts.

    4×3=12
    5×5=25
    12+25=37
    4 tricycles and 5 go-carts.

    Thank you.

    The two ways are:

    1) 5 go-carts x 5 wheels =25 wheels + 4 tricycles x 3 wheels = 12 wheels = total: 37 wheels.
    2) 5 go- carts x 2 wheels = 10 wheels+ 9 tricycles x 3 wheels = 27 wheels = total: 37 wheels

    1. 5 go-carts(5×5=25) and 4 tricycles(3×4=12),25+12=37.
    2. 9 tricycles (9×3=27) and 2 go-carts (2×5=10),27+10=37.

    Hi. I have found two ways.

    1.(9 tricycles) 3×9= 27. (2 go carts) 5×2= 10
    10+27= 37 wheels

    2. (4 Tricycles) 3×4=12. (5 go carts) 5×5= 25
    12+25= 37 wheels

    This maths was a bit difficult but fun doing.

      I’m glad you found it a fun challenge! We’ll be working more on the 3x table in Year 3, so I hope you’ve been practising your 2x, 5x and 10x tables at home!

      Don’t forget to use Times Tables Rockstars everyone!

    1- 5 go-carts and 3-tricycles
    (5×5 )= 25 , (3×4)= 12.
    25+12= 37 wheels
    2- 2 go-carts and 9 tricycles.
    (5×2)= 10 . (9×3) =27 .
    10+27 = 37wheels .
