19. Huzaifa S.

(Bronze)

Yes its true, when you add up the two even number they will make another even number. Example; 2+4=6 and 4+4=8.

(Silver)

35+1=36
30+6=36
32+4=36
36+0=36
33+3=36
18+18=36

(Gold)

20p+5p=25p
10p+10p+5p=25p
10p+15p=25p

(Platinum)

The answer to 4+5+6 is 15. I noticed the pattern of 2,3,4,3,4,5 and 4, 5, 6 but if we continue adding the sequence we are adding up to 3 numbers. Example; 5+6+7=18 and 6+7+8=21. so its a 3 timetable or counting by 3s.

2+3+4=9
3+4+5=12
4+5+6=15
5+6+7=18 Bronze
This is true because if you add 2 same even numbers altogether it will make even number example: 4
+4=8.

21. Haseeb B.

silver
36-0=36
30+6=36
40-4=36
6+30=36
20+16=36

22. Haseeb B.

Bronze
If you add too even numbeers together it will allways make an even number.
2+2=4
4+4=8
6+6=12
8+8=16
10+10=20
20+20=40
6+10=16
I think it’s treu because two even number’s allway stay the same

23. Kayla P.

Bronze

The answer is true because when adding the following even numbers together the total sum is always an even number. Example:

2+2 = 4
4+ 6 = 10
12+4 = 1
20+4 = 24
18+8 = 26

Silver challenge:

There are many different says to make 36. Here are some examples:

32+4 = 36
24+12 = 36
1+35 = 36
34+2 = 36
25+11 = 36
16+20 = 36
17+19 = 36
28+8 = 36

Gold challenge:

The different ways to make 25p is:

5p + 5p + 5p + 5p + 5p = 25p

10p +10p + 5p = 25p

10p + 5p +5p + 5p = 25p

2p + 2p +2p + 2p +2p + 10p + 5p = 25p

1p + 1p + 1p + 1p + 2p + 2p + 5p + 10p = 25p

24. Naksh P.

bronze It is true I know because 2+4=6,8+10=18 and 2+18=42.
silver you can make 36+0=36,35+1=36,30+6=36,20+16=36 and 10+26=36. gold you could find 25 by seeing any 5p.
platinum the number will come next is 15 and I notice that it is going in numbers in order but two times.
