How to work out mathsmate problem 23.

The way to solve this question is…

step. 1 I started with five and thought of what you add to five to get 24.

 step. 2 when you figure out what you add to five to get 24 you put the numbers in the circles

until you get 24.

step. 3 because there are three lines you have to figure out those too.

step. 4 when you have figured out the three lines and you double check if they are correct

and if they are you are finished.

here is my example.

5 + 10 + 9 = 24

9 + 8 + 7 = 24

AND

8 + 6 + 10 = 24

PREDICT

We predicted this question was going to be  about addition and guessing.

READ:

Place the numbers 6,7,8,9,and 10 so that the sum on every line is 24.

CLARIFY: nothing

WHATS THE BIG QUESTION:

which numbers go where

TEST ALL POSSIBILITES

is the  tool 1 used from the mathematicians tool box.

HOW DID WE FIGURE IT OUT

so here we worked out a combination with 5 in it that would equal 24. So we chose 9 and 10. Then we worked ou the centre line. Which had to be a sum that equaled 24 and had a ten in it, (because the ten was on one of the sides of the centre line’s sides. So we tried 8 and 6 which together would equal 14 plus the 10 would equal 24. Then all I had left was the seven so I put that in the last box.

SUMMARY:

After all that we worked out the answer.We thought it was a pretty easy question when we got the hang of it. Our prediction was pretty accurate and we thought that we went really well and we think the tool we chose was the right one.
