Weekly Maths Problem
Don’t forget to write out the problem at the top of the page, date the work and show all your workings out (even the wrong answers) and then file the evidence in your folder!
In order to finish the Design and Technology sewing projects this year, I bought 8 spools of thread. Each spool of red thread is 8 metres long and each spool of gold thread is 5 metres long. If I bought 55 metres of thread in total, how many rolls of each colour did I buy?
You can share your answers here in the forum on the website or with me as I visit during the week. Remember you need to show your workings out to get the maximum points.
