Hand Span

Stage: 1 Challenge Level: Challenge Level:1

Harriet tried this problem out:

My hand's not as big as my mum's, so it took more spans to go round the tree. So if I told you how big the tree was, you might think that it was bigger than if my mum told you. So it's better to use a tape measure and use centimetres or something because then we'll all give the same answer.
