Maths Mate Term 4 Sheet 4 Q 22

Prediction: I predict that I will use prior knowledge to assist me

Read: blank divided by 5=9

Clarify: I have nothing to clarify

Mathematician’s toolbox: I will be using brake the problem up into manageable parts.

Solving:

1. 9×5= 45 so I need to put 45 in the blank spot for the answer.

Conclusion this problem was relatively easy to solve.

Prediction I predict that this sum will get you thinking.

Read: Which deal costs less per gram?

a)$5 fo 500g b) $3 for 250g

Clarify: I have nothing to clarify.

Mathematician’s toolbox: I will be using brake the problem into manageable parts.

Solving:

  1. 1.  In a) it is $1 per 100g.
  2. 2.  In b) it is more than $1 per 100g

3. So the answer is a)

Conclusion this problem was easy to solve.

Prediction I predict that this sum we will use prior knowledge.

Read: 36 divided by blank =4

Clarify: I have nothing to clarify.

Mathematician’s toolbox: I will be using work backwards.

Solving:

  1. 1.  I know that 9×4=36.

2. So we should put the 9 in the blank spot.

3. This is what the answer will look like: 36 divided by 9=4

Conclusion: this problem was easy to solve.

Prediction:  I predict that this problem will be similar to other problems I have solved.

Read: The sum of four consecutive whole numbers is 94. What are the four numbers?

Clarify: I have nothing to clarify.

The big question: what is the sum of four consecutive whole numbers?

Mathematician’s tool-box: Break the problem into manageable parts.

Solve:

  1. 1.  There is no consecutive number that equals 90 so let’s make it 80. 20+20+20+20=80
  2. 2.  2, 3, 4 and 5 equals 14, and 80+14= 94.

3. Add a 20 with 2, 3, 4 or 5.

4. Here are the answers: 22, 23, 24 and 25.

Conclusion: since I have done a similar problem it was a bit easier.

Prediction: I predict that this sum will be hard to solve.

Read: the sum of two consecutive whole numbers is 97. What are the two numbers?

Clarify: I have nothing to clarify.

The big question: what are the two consecutive numbers?

Mathematician’s tool-box: Break the problem into manageable parts.

Solve:

1. There are no to 10’s that equal 90. (Plus they need to be consecutive.)

2.  40+40= 80 and 8+9=17 if you add them together it equals 97.

3. To get this number all you have to do is make both of the numbers start with 40 and make one number 48 an the other 49.

Conclusion: some parts of this sum were harder than others.
