100WC Week #35

He knew the Procepians would think his weak if they saw him cry so he wiped off the tears. The Procepians are the Vikings of Procepia, and all the Vikings of Tonitalia were dead, except James Batakis. Hope was lost. He was supposed to steal the Tonitalia crown back from the Procepians, but he had no hope. He was thinking of escaping, but then he saw the crown. He snuck up on it but the lights shun on to the crown and reflected back on to his eyes. When he got back, he said “I could have got it, but the light was so bright.”

Maths Mate Term 2 Sheet 8 Q 23#

Predict:
I predict this question will be about counting.

Read:
If you could roll the same number every time, what number would you choose so that you could move from S to F in the least number of rolls.

Clarify:
Nothing to clarify.

Solve:
I use the test all possibilities strategy on this question. I tried one first, but that couldn’t even make it to F. Next I tried two and that took me five rolls, and I thought that was going to win, but I checked the others just in case. In the end, three, four, five and six didn’t get less than five rolls, so 2 was the answer.

100WC Week #33

“Attack!” yells Sargent Johnson. The Turkish had had lots more people on their side. James was shooting at the Turkish, but his gun took a bullet and he was unarmed. A man came over and attacked him with a large machete. He had to run. He had wet and heavy clothing, and with the added weight he weighed around 140 kilograms. He had no chance to escape. He suffered a large cut on his leg and he got carried to safety. The nurses did all they could to spare his life, but they couldn’t. His family never saw him again.

Maths Mate Term 2-Sheet 6 Question 24

Predict:
I predict this going to be about addition and algebra.

Read:
In the addition problem shown, each letter represents a different digit from 1 to 9. If R=8,what number does FOUR represent.
TWO
+TWO
FOUR
Clarify:
Nothing to clarify.
Solve:
First I tried the guess, check and improve strategy.  I knew that the R was 8, so I figured out the O was 4. I tried to make W 3 and make U six and that worked, so I decided that I would do that. In the next part, I knew that the O had to be a four, but it needs to carry because the answer was four digits long so I did W=7 and it worked. After all of that I figured out that the final answer was 1468 and the equation was 734+734=1468.
