My Son is Naughty
Jack and Ray were at the rugby. Ray’s team was winning
so Jack decided to give Ray a problem to deflate his ego a
bit. So Jack said “Did you know that today is my three
sons’ birthday?” “How old are they?” Ray asked taking
the bite. “I’ll give you a hint. The product of their ages is
36 and the sum of their ages is 13,” Jack replied. “That’s
no help,” said Ray. So Jack weakened and gave him
another clue. “O.K. My youngest son is very naughty.”
“Nothing to it,” exclaimed Ray and he told Jack the
correct ages of his sons.
How did Ray figure out the correct answer and what are
Jack’s sons’ ages?

Some octopuses, some fish and a few
mermaids were happily frolicking in a rock
pool. Altogether there were 38 arms, 24 eyes
and 8 tails all swimming in the pool.
How many mermaids were there?

We have been solving a problem and trying to answer the question. We’ll the question “was how many mermaids were there?” There is 38 arms, 24 eyes and 8 tails. We know that there is 12 creatures all together. Our answer was three. There were three mermaids.

We worked like this.... We did 4 x 8 = 32 38-32 = 6.  

EYES- First we solved the eyes because all creatures have eyes. 24 - 2 =12

TAILS- If 8 creatures have tails then 4 creatures don’t have tails.
Now we know there are 4 octopuses

ARMS- 8 x 4 = 32 38 arms all together. now we have 6 arms 6 - 2 = 3 so 3 mermaids and 4 oct... 12 creatures 3 mermaids 5 fish so how many creature are there ? 12

Ana Restaurant Question

Kimberly pizza problem from Team 5 PES on Vimeo.

The Pizza Place in my town has three
tables of the same size. The Chicken
N Chips restaurant has four of the
same sort of table.
The Chicken N Chips can just seat 24
people. How many people can The
Pizza Place seat?
Now a third of the seats at The Chicken N Chips were
empty and a half of the places at The Pizza Place were
empty. If 18 more people wanted to eat out, how many
would have to be turned away from the two restaurants?

Cross Country

With butterflies in my tummy, I look around at all the crowded people sitting down on the hot concrete, peering at me, I was racing all the year seven’s it was a challenge omg I might come last I was so scared I didn't
even want to run. But I had to and if I didn't come miss king would make me run on Monday at lunch time. Standing at the starting line I felt like crying.

“Mr Burt said are you ready , get your  mark , ready set GO”. I ran as fast as I could running past all these people my brother said “Run faster.” I gave him my eye’s “Eww!” I said in my mind. I got up to the reserve and  I was so tired I wanted to stop, but I still ran. We had to run two laps Which I really didn't like.

Then I was on my 2nd lap trying to finish quick so I can have a long break. As I started running again I saw the  year eight girls. Then I saw a boy pass me. I wanted to run faster, but I couldn't because I was out of breath. I was pasting myself slowly so I won’t have to stop all the time. I could hear my friend’s saying run Ana run faster.

near to the finish line, I past some people and this lady looking familiar was like “run girl, run girlfriend to the end you can do it”. “Yaay the finish line is right in front of my brown eyes. I went past the finish line and came 9th. I was really proud of myself.
