This is how you answer a question

ReplyDeleteMARBLES

The Answer

I think this is the answer because when you multiply this by that and take away that etc etc etc

HUNDREDS PLACE

ReplyDeleteB) 9

The first number on the right is the ones, the second is the tens and the third is the hundreds column

MISSING NUMBER

ReplyDelete44

I found that by doing 4+7=11

And then 11x4= 44

Oh and 44-17=27

MISSING NUMBER

ReplyDelete32

I found that out by doing 4 x 7 then + 4 = 32

BEDMAS = Whenever you are doing a problem with more than one operation (+ - x /) you do it in this order

ReplyDeleteB= Brackets (do everything in the brackets first_

E = exponents (like squared, cubed etc- do them next)

DM (Division and multiplication next- in the order they are in the problem)

AS (Addition and subtraction- these are the last things to do - also in the order they appear in the problem e.g you can do subtraction before addition if that is how it is written)

DeleteTo the power of 1 = alt 251 2¹

DeleteTo the power of 2 = alt 253 2²

To the power of 3 = alt 252 2³

THANK YOU!

DeleteOk never knew that thank you

ReplyDeleteRemember an EQUAL sign is like an old fashioned kitchen scale... it means that both sides of the equation have to balance :)

ReplyDelete32 - 17 = 15

ReplyDeleteDoes each side balance (equal the same thing)???

DeleteOh yes i get it now same as cooper ^ ^ ^ ^

ReplyDeleteDoes each side balance (equal the same thing)???

DeleteMISSING NUMBER

ReplyDeleteI got 61...( with a little help from mum...)

4+7=11x4=44, 61-17=44, so 61 ;D

You forgot to use the rule of BEDMAS (look at my explanation above)

DeleteLINES OF SYMMETRY

ReplyDeleteI got A ( the trapezium / trapezoid )

You can only half it one way ( vertically ) to get two identical sides

MARBLES

ReplyDeleteI got 57 ( B )

Pete lost 4 marbles, and had 34 left, so he had 38 at the start of the day. Pete had twice the amount of marbles that Sally has, so Sally has 38/2 = 19 marbles. Kate had three times the amount that sally had, so 19x3=>57<

^^^^^^^

HUNDREDS PLACE

ReplyDeleteB, 9

It goes ( from right to left ) thousands-(5) >hundreds<-(9) tens-(6) ones-(4)

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

DeleteYes... left to right... I was half asleep, as my brother was up in the night... wasn't thinking straight

DeleteMarbles = [b 57]

ReplyDeletebecause if Pete's lost for marbles at lunch time and it adds up to 34 it means he had 38 marbles and because he had double the amount of marbles sally had and that means she had 19 marbles and because Kate had three time's the amount sally had it equals 57

ReplyDelete14) Shapes

ReplyDeleteB) A triangle

because there are 7 triangles and the rest there are only 6 of them.

11) Sunils pattern

B) multiply by 3 then subtract 3

because if you do 4x3= 12 -3 = 9

Delete13)DIVISIBILITY RULES

ReplyDeleteC)60

because 3x20 =60, 4x15=60 and 5x12=60

Just one question: is this for the year 6 test or the year 5 test for NSW? Or is it some year 5's and some year 6's?
