I absolutely love this kind of maths! I love problem solving and logic. Well done Y3s!
This week in maths we have been looking at different number and place value problems.
In this problem there are six numbers written in five different scripts.
We had to sort out which is which!
Here is one of our solutions:
We started with one hundred because it’s the only three digit number. However, there was only 3 of them. We then found all the twos because that is the only one digit number. Then we used the two to find all the twenty fives. We used the five to find all the fifty eights and then the eights to find the eighty threes. Then we used the threes to find the thirteens and the number left over was the missing one hundred.
