Dear friends,

We have got more tasks for you:-)

1. There are 100 apples and only 5 baskets.

**How to place all apples into the baskets?**
2. My dad had 5 banknotes of 20 euros. He bought a pair of shoes and spent 56 euros. He bought a jumper and spent 25 euros.

**How much money was left for his coffee?**
3. There are 45 apples on the oak. Each branch holds 5 apples.

**How many apples are there on the oak? :-)**
4. One landlord had 5 servants and a big palace of 100 rooms. One servant tidies 20 rooms every day.

**How many days do they need to tidy all the rooms? Half the rooms?**
GOOD LUCK :-D

Most of our students answered 100/5=20 or 20 + 20 + 20 + 20 + 20 = 100. But we had some who answered: 60 + 10 + 10 + 10 + 10 or 50 + 10 + 10 + 10 + 20 or 20 + 20 + 40 + 10 + 10 or 40 + 10 + 10 + 10 + 30. We have lots of answers we can give because this is an open problem.

ReplyDelete2) 5 x 20 = 100

ReplyDelete100 - 56 = 100 - 50 - 6 = 50 - 6 = 44

44 - 25 = 44 - 20 - 5 = 24 - 5 = 19

For his coffee he has 19€.

Other answer:

56 + 25 = 81

100 - 81 = 100 - 80 - 1 = 20 - 1 = 19€

3) 5 + 5 + 5 + 5 + 5 + 5 + 5 + 5 + 5 = 45 The oak has 9 branches with 5 apples each.

ReplyDeleteOther answer:

45 / 5 = 9

If each servant tidies 20 all together they tidy 100 rooms in one day!

ReplyDelete5 x 20 = 100

You should be clever and think about OAK AND APPLES:-) Is it possible???:-)

ReplyDeleteBut you are good at maths because your answers to the other tasks are correct. Thanks.

Ah, ah, ah, we thought it was a mistake on the problem!!

ReplyDeleteThank you Laima, good trap!!
