Predict: I thought this would be about addition.

Clarify: I had nothing to clarify.

Find the big picture: What does the last string’s beads add up to?

Solve:

First I worked out what the value of each bead was. It took a while, but eventually I worked out that the dark read beads equal 4, and the white ones equal 1.

Then for the third string, I worked out that 1+1 was two, and 2+2+2=6+2 is 8, so the pink beads equal 2.

For the last string I worked out that 1+2+2+4+4 was 13, so 13 is the answer!

‘But I’m afraid it’s the last one’, she said to boy. The forest was dark and wet, with shadows of the trees cast on the ground. ‘You have to leave it behind’ said the boy. Reluctantly, she let the piece of paper slip from her hands and fall to the ground. They turned and ran away, just as a pack of wolves bounded into the clearing, howling in dismay as they desperately turned up the earth, looking for some trace of people but found nothing but the scented paper they had been following. The boy and girl didn’t look back.

Question 22: The sum of two consecutive whole numbers is 97. What are the two numbers?

Predict: I thought this problem would be about addition.

Clarify: Consecutive(Number straight after each other- 56,57)

Find the big picture: What two consecutive numbers make 97?

Solve:

First I worked out that half of 90 is 45.

Next I kept on guessing consecutive numbers higher than 45.

Then I figured out that the numbers were 48 and 49, because they add up to 97.
