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.

16. 2 cars and 9 bikes =26wheels.

17. 2×4=8 / 2×9=18 / 8+18=26.

18. 4 cars and 5 bikes =26 wheels.

19. 4×4=16 / 5×2=10 / 16+10=26.

20. 6 cars and 1 bikes = 26 wheels.

21.6×4= 24 / 1×2= 2 / 24+2 = 26.

I don’t want you copying the work of other children!

Aslamwalaykum Abdul,

I am very impressed with your work.

🌟

1 car + 11 bikes

2 cars + 9 bikes

3 cars + 7 bikes

4 cars + 5 bikes

5 cars + 3 bikes

6 cars + 1 bike

Hi Mahmuda,

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

6 cars 1 bike

5 cars 3 bike

2 cars 9 bikes

3cars 7 bikes

A good effort Afreen.

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 )

Hi Zak,

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

l will do it later l nred to bye paper.

Please send photos of your work Haaris so we can check your learning. You can also type your answers as a comment.

I will do it later

Great stuff

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

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

Hi Aayan,

I found 6 solutions too!

Great perseverance with your learning!

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

Super work Simin! How can you use your 4x tables to help you with your 8x tables?

Skip count by 4

Well done Simin!

I like your logical approach to this investigation.

3 bikes 5 cars

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

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.

Super work Surinder! How can you use your 4x tables to help you with your 8x tables?

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

Hi Surinder,

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

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

I look forward to seeing your work Kev! How can you use your 4x tables to help you with your 8x tables?
