# 19.05.20 4W Maths Home Learning

Hello Year 4, today your maths is going to be on learning by questions. Please look carefully at which task you have got to do as different children will have different tasks.

Group 1 – Abubaker, Abdirahman, Muhammad, Absi, Qasim, Bijan

Group 2 – Rest of Class.

Children in Group 2, you can have a go at group 1 task but will have to do both tasks.

This question has tricked quite a few people today. There are several ways you could solve it.

We need to take the time the chameleon lives away from the time the rabbit lives to find the difference.
Hint 1: Convert 3 years 6 months to months (12×3) + 6 = ____ and take away from 120 months.
Hint 2: Convert 120 months to years (120 divided by 12) = _____ and take away 3 years 6 months. Then convert back to months.

*I don’t think this is scientifically accurate- rabbits don’t live for that long… I wonder if anyone can find out how long rabbits and chameleons actually live….?

Chameleons actually live longer than rabbits.(In the wild)!

I also found out how long rabbits and chameleons actually live.
Rabbits-1-2 years(not pet ones)!
Chameleons-2-3 years in the wild!

11. Iqra Y.

i did it and i did not get the last on group 1

• Miss Phillpotts

Good Iqra- I’ve posted a question you had problems with first time at the bottom of the blog (and other children did) with some hints. Give it another go!

• Iqra Y.

I did get the answer right the first time but I did not convert it into months but here is the answer in months now 36+6=42 months so 120 months – 42 months = 78 months longer.
I found out the average lifespan of a pet rabbit is about 8-12 years but this depends on their diet and suitable housing. While the wild rabbit lives about 1-2 years in the wild. Domesticated chameleon lives longer than the wild one which is about 6-8 years in the wild which is longer than that.
