'Same Length Trains' printed from http://nrich.maths.org/

Show menu


Matt made a train with the Cuisenaire rods. It looked like this:

light green rod, pink rod, black rod, dark green rod

Katie made one too, exactly the same length, with just white rods. Hers looked like this:

20 white rods

Can you make some trains the same length as Matt's train, with rods of just one colour?
How many different ones can you make?
