Here are nine triangles. Each one has three numbers on it.
Your challenge is to arrange these triangles to make one big triangle, so the numbers that touch add up to 10.
You can print out this copy of the triangles
and cut them out, then try arranging them.
If you prefer, here
is a printable version of the triangles with the numbers represented on tens frames.
Alternatively, you could use the interactive below to drag and drop the small triangles to fill all the spaces in the big triangle.
Let us know how you go about trying to make the big triangle.
