# Thursday 21st May – Year 3 Maths Intervention Group

Did you know that if you can count in twos you can count in fours?   By skip counting in twos you can count in fours – see below.  To follow is an investigation for you to complete, which requires you to use both your two times and four times tables.  It might be an idea to get 26 counters (you could use 1p coins or anything else you have to hand) to support with your learning.

1. We have 26 wheels in total.
2. 🚗 and 🚲.
3. 🚘 has 4 wheels and 🚲 has 2 wheels.
🚲
4. 1bike and 6 cars = 26 wheels.
5. 1×2=2 / 6×4= 24 / 2+24= 26.
6. 3 bikes and 5 cars = 26.
7. 3×2 = 6 / 5 x 4 = 20 / 20 + 6 = 26.
8. 5 bikes and 4 cars = 26 wheels.
9. 5×2 = 10 / 4 x 4 = 16 / 16 + 10 = 26.
10. 7 bikes and 3 cars = 26 wheels.
11. 7×2 = 14 / 3 x 4 = 12 / 14+12= 26.
12. 9 bikes and 2 cars = 26 wheels.
13. 9 x 2 = 18 / 2x 4= 8 / 18+8= 26.
🚘
14. 1 car and 11 bikes = 26 wheels.
15. 1×4 = 4 / 11×2 = 22 / 22+ 4=26.

(1) 1 bike and 6 car
2 wheels + 24 wheels
2) 3 car and 7 bike
12 weeks + 14 wheels
(3) 11 bikes and 1car
22 wheels + 4 wheels
(4) 4 car and 5 bikes
16 wheels + 10 wheels
(5) 9 bikes and 2 car
18 wheels + 8 wheels

Aslamwalaykum Abdul,
I am very impressed with your work.
🌟

4. Mahmuda C.

1 car + 11 bikes
2 cars + 9 bikes
3 cars + 7 bikes
4 cars + 5 bikes
5 cars + 3 bikes
6 cars + 1 bike

• Ms Khan

Hi Mahmuda,
It looks like you did this problem in a systematic way! 🌟

5. Afreen S.

6 cars 1 bike
5 cars 3 bike
2 cars 9 bikes
3cars 7 bikes

• Ms Khan

A good effort Afreen.

6. Zakariah D.

Total number of wheels and variations of cars 🚗 and 🚲
Car has 4 wheels, a bike has 2 wheels
6 cars and 1 bike = 26 ( 6 x 4 = 24 + 6 = 26)
5 cars and 3 bikes = 26 ( 5 x 4 = 20 + 6 = 26)
4 cars and 5 bikes = 26 ( 4 x 4 = 16 + 10 = 26)
3 cars and 7 bikes = 26 ( 3 x 4 = 12 + 14 = 26)
2 cars and 9 bikes = 26 ( 2 x 4 = 8 + 18 = 26)
1 car and 11 bikes = 26 ( 1 x 4 = 4 + 22 = 26
13 bikes = 26 ( 13 x 2 = 26 )

• Ms Khan

Hi Zak,
Great use of your 4 times tables to solve this problem.

l will do it later l nred to bye paper.

• Mrs Sanders

8. Saee N.

I will do it later

• Miss Millar

Great stuff

9. Aayan M.

1. 5 car and 3 bikes
20 wheels + 6 wheels = 26
2. 3 car and 7 bike
12 weeks + 14 wheels = 26
3. 11 bikes and 1car
22 wheels + 4 wheels = 26
4. 4 car and 5 bikes
16 wheels + 10 wheels = 26
5. 9 bikes and 2 car
18 wheels + 8 wheels = 26
6. 1 bike and 6 car
2 wheels + 24 wheels =26

• Mrs Khaliq

Well done Aayan! Can you find any other possibilities for question 6?

• Ms Khan

Hi Aayan,
I found 6 solutions too!

10. Simin W.

1)1 car + 11 bikes
2)2 cars + 9 bikes
3)3 cars + 7 bikes
4)4 cars + 5 bikes
5)5 cars + 3 bikes
6)6 cars + 1 bike

• Mrs Sanders

• Simin W.

Skip count by 4

• Ms Khan

Well done Simin!
I like your logical approach to this investigation.

11. Leon T.

3 bikes 5 cars

• Mrs Begum

Well done buddy that is 1 possibility . Can you think of any others?

12. Surinder J.

24 wheels +2 wheels = 6 cars + 1 bike.
20 wheels + 6 wheels = 5 cars +3 bikes.
16 wheels + 10 wheels = 4 cars + 5 bikes.
12 wheels + 14 wheels = 3 cars+ 7 bikes.
8 wheels + 18 wheels = 2 cars + 9 bikes.
4 wheels + 22 wheels = 1 car + 11 bikes.

• Mrs Sanders

• Surinder J.

By skip counting in fours, I can easily count in eights.

• Ms Khan

Hi Surinder,
I like the methodical way you have done this problem. 👏

13. Kevin R.

I’ve done this on paper, I used 2p coins to count the wheels, it was fun.
