Maths Mate Term 4 Sheet 5 Question 22

Question: Which deal costs less per gram?

A)     $5 for 500g

B)      $3 for 250g

Predict: I thought this question would be about addition.

Clarify: I had nothing to clarify.

Find the big picture: What deal is better?

Solve:

First I worked out that $5 for 500g was $1 per gram.

Then I worked out that 250g+250g was 500g, but 3+3 is 6, so B would be $6 for 500g, while A is $5 for 500g.

So A is the answer because it cost less than B.

Summary: I used my prior knowledge.

Maths Mate Term 4 Sheet 4 Question 23

Question: Fill in the magic square (Hint: Every row, column and diagonal has the same sum.)

Maths Mate Term 4 Sheet 4 empty

Predict: I thought this would be about addition

Clarify: I had nothing to clarify.

Find the big picture: What goes in the magic square?

Solve:

First I worked out that 16+15+14 was 45, so everything had to add up to 45.

Next I worked out that 12+16+17 was 45, so I put the 17 next to the 16.

Then I worked out 12+15+18 was 45, so I put the 18 diagonally below the 15.

Next I worked out that 17+18+10 was 45, so I put the 10 below the 17.

Next I worked out that 10+15+20 was 45, so I put 20 next to the 15.

Finally I worked out that 12+20+13 was 45, so I put the 13 below the 20.
