You can make a calculator count for you by any number you choose.
You can count by ones to reach 24. You can count by twos to reach
24. What else can you count by to reach 24?
Find the squares that Froggie skips onto to get to the pumpkin
patch. She starts on 3 and finishes on 30, but she lands only on a
square that has a number 3 more than the square she skips from.
We have had a solution to this problem from Rebecca in
Colchester. She says:
Kimie needs 3 sticks, Sebastian needs 2, the line is 6
Other solutions are:
Kimi 6, Sebastian 4, Length 12
Kimi 9, Sebastian 6, Length 18
Kimi 12, Sebastian 8, Length 24
Alistair from Histon and Impington Infants School said:
Yes they can make their lines the same length. Kimie could use
three sticks for Sebastian's two. They would both make a line six
cubes long. They can make other lines the same length. These will
be in the 6 times table.
