# Maths Mate Term 4 Sheet 7 Question 22

Which deal costs less per litre?

A) $32 for 4 L

B) $8.50 for 1 L

Predict: I thought this question would be about division or multiplication.

Clarify: I had nothing to clarify.

Find the big picture: What deal is cheaper per litre?

Solve:

First I worked what 8.50 x 4 was, because it was only 1 litre, and the other deal was 4 litres, and 8.50 x 4 was $33.50 for 4 L.

So A is $32 per 4 litres, and B is $33.50 per 4 litres. So A is the answer, because it is $1.50 less than B per 4 litres.

Summary: I used the work backwards method.

# Maths Mater Term 4 Sheet 6 Question 24

Question: Fill in the missing digits in the multiplication.

Predict: I thought this problem would be about multiplication.

Clarify: I had nothing to clarify.

Find the big picture: What are the missing numbers?

Solve:

First I worked out that 3×6 is 18 so I put the 8 down and carried the 1.

Then I worked out that 3x? had to be 12 because plus the 1 would be 13, and that was 3×4, so I put down the 4 and carried the 1,

Finally I worked out that 3×2 is 6, plus the 1 is 7, so I put the 7 in the last box.

Summary: I used the guess, check and improve method.
