Good day!
First of all we think congratulations are in order for Rumen and Allana who were the first ones to figure out the previous maths puzzle! As Rumen quite rightly points out, the blue flower only had four petals in the final maths sentence and so only had a value of 4. Therefore it was
1 + 20 x 4 = 81
First of all you have to see how many triangles are in this shape:
And then let us know how many squares you can see in this shape:
Take your time with this as there are more than you think on both of them!
How many squares are there?
EDIT
This is the final one now that you have successfully counted the shapes in the previous ones:
How many triangles can you see?
Once you have done that then draw your own diagram where we have to try to spot how many hidden shapes there are! If you send it to admin@westgreen.haringey.sch.uk then there is a chance that we will post it on here and let everyone else have a go at your challenge.
We are looking forward to seeing all of your answers!
GOOD LUCK!
My Spours and Patrick
Not quite Sophia- there are quite a few more for all of them!
Actually- Just find the squares. It is too difficult to keep track if you count the rectangles as well
Incorrect unfortunately! There are both more triangle and more squares.
You are correct with the squares Abdulhalim! Well done! Check the triangles one more time.
Tough luck Weda! Have a look at the new one. There are a lot more squares this time!
There are 11 triangles in the pentagon, and there are 17 squares.
Good job Adrian! That’s the answer (or at least that’s what I got). I’ll put another one up later today!
Yes good job Tianna! Nice to see both siblings represented!
I can see where you are coming from Sophia but try looking for different sized squares.
Some of them are much smaller than others.
I think I got it this time again, is it 36 squares? I had to double check. There was too much going on in the shape xD
Haha- you’re right on there being too much going on! Unfortunately you are just short on the answer. Really close though Adrian!
Good job Adrian! That one was not easy as well!
Excellent Tianna! That one took me ages to figure out!
Patrick my mum doesn’t know who the winner of the poem is yet
I said 40 because i saw Adrian’s comment but I figured out the triangles myself
I finally found it!!! I like had to quadriple check, I think. I didn’t look at what people have said already, just incase it gave me the answer, but then when I was done, and pretty sure it was 27 triangles, I saw Tianna’s comment and saw that I was correct too!!!😁😁
Haha- well you are an award winning writer now to be fair. That is as well as being an accomplished mathematician- good job, you are correct!
