Faith has 27 tens and jessica has two

5. Elen M.

Faith has 27 ones and Jessica has 2 tens and 9 ones so Jessica has the most because 2 tens and 9 ones = 29. Silver

6. Gufran E.

Jessica got more because she got 20 tens and nine which is 29. Isla is correct because 7×10=70p

Habib is correct because 4+30=34 50+5=55 90+7=97
70+3=73

Alex could have 41 or 47 or 49 Alex could not have 100 or 96 or 32

8. Arafath A.

Bronze:

Part 1:

40, 42 and 45

Part 2:

50, 51 and 59

Silver:

Jessica has the largest number because two tens and 9 ones equal to 29. Faith has 27 ones which is 2 less than Jessica’s number.

Gold:

Habib is correct. I know this because if you add 10 to the number 5, the total would clearly be 15. As you can see the units/ones is not affected, in this case 5.

Platinum:

Isla is right. I know this as 7 lots of 10p equals 70p, add that to 32p the total is £1.02

9. Zainab A.

11+10=21

10. Aayan M.

Bronze
My number has four tens, give 3 examples what it can be.
1) 40
2) 10101010
3) 44444444440

What it can’t be is,
1) 10
2) 20
3) 50

Silver
Jessica has the largest number because 9 ones and two tens are 29 which is bigger then 27.

Gold
Habib is right, because the place values of tens are higher than ones. ten is made up from 10 x 1. When ones become into tens, the number goes into the place unit of tens.
Example
1-9 is smaller than 10. These numbers only have a place unit of one number and 10’s have 2 numbers.

Platinum
Isla has 32+70= 102p

11. Lawy A.

Platinum:
it is corect as she has £1.02 which is more than £1

12. Luxor A.

Plantinum

She is right because 32p added to 70p makes 102p.

17. Brooke M.

32+10+10+10+10+10+10+10=1.02

Gold
Habib is correct because the number of the tens get bigger and the ones stay the same.
45 +10=55

24. Suraiyah A.

Platinum Challenge Maths
Isla has 32 p and she gets 7 lots of 10 p for her birthday. She has more than £1 because she has 32 p and then she gets 7 lots of 10 p and 10×7=70p and 70+32=102 p and £1 is 100 p and Isla has more then £1 by 2 p

25. Raisa-Marina V.

BRONZE
It Can be 41. 44. 48
It can not be 10. 20. 30

26. Sarah Y.

Silver
27 is the biggest number because I counted all the numbers.
Gold
when you add ten to any number it not always stay the same
Example
2+10=12
10+10=20
15+10=25
5+10=15
platimun
yes she is correct because if you have 7 10s = 70 +32=102p

27. Sarah Y.

Silver
27 is the biggest number because I counted all the numbers.
Gold
when you add ten to any number it not always stay the same
Example
2+10=12
10+10=20
15+10=25
5+10=15
platinum
yes she is correct because if you have 7 10s = 70 +32=102p

28. Abdurrahman K.

Silver
Jessica has the bigger number because she has 29 and faith has 27. Because 2 tens make 20 and 9 ones make 9 so Jessica has 29.

Gold
Habib is right because 15 + 10 = 25, 21 + 10 = 31. The number in the ones side stays the same when you add 10

Platinum
Isla is right because she has more than a pond because 70p + 32p = 1 pound and 2p

29. Abdurrahman K.

Bronze
40 it can be 41, 42 or 49

It can’t be 20, 30 or 60

30. Amanah S.

Platinum challenge

Isla has 32p , she gets 7 lots of 10p, so we find out how much she has altogether
7 lots of 10p= 7 X 10p = 70p
So 32p + 70p = 102p
In £1 there is 100p but Isla has 102p so she has more than £1

31. Amelia H.

Bronze
The answer is 40
The number could be 41 42 43
It can’t be 30 35 25

Silver
Faith has 27 ones =27
Jessica has two tens and nine ones
20 +9=29
Jessica has the largest number

Gold
Hibib is right
10+11=21
20+11=31

32. Sara M.

Bronze it could be 44,46,47.
It can’t be 30,36,21.
Silver Jessica has the highest number cause she has 29 altogether.

33. Taha A.

NUMBER has four tens
44 45 46 48 49
Could example three
33 34 35 36 37

34. Yaw A.

PLATINUM
Yes this is correct because first she has 32p add the 70p from her birthday add them together then she got £1 and 2p.So she did have more than £1.

35. Osato O.

Platinum

Isla has 32p
She gets 7 lots of 10p for her birthday.
She has more than £1 because:
7 lots of 10p= 10p+10p+10p+10p+10p+10p+10p=70p

So 32p+70p = £1.2p

Gold

When you add ten to any number. the ones does not always stay the same.
For example:
2+10= 12
10+10=20
15+10=25
5+10 =15
So its not true.

Silver

Faith has 27 ones.
Jessica has two tens and 9 ones.

Jessica has the largest number because Faith has only 27 ones.

Jessica= 10+10+ 1+1+1+1+1+1+1+1+1=29.
please see more explanation on my homework book.

Bronze

My number has four tens
Examples are
10+10+10+10 = 40
10+10+10+10+5= 45
10+10+10+10+6 =46

Number that does not have four tens are:

10+10+6= 26
10+10+10+6= 36
10+10+10+10+10+7= 57
Please see more explanation on my homework book

36. Safa M.

Platinum challenge
yes she has more one pound because 7 lots of 10p is 70p and if we add 70p to 32p then it is 102p or one pound and 2p.

37. Mosaver M.

Gold challenge
The 10 has zero in the ones column so every number add to zero stay the same number.
11+10=21
12+10=22
13+10=23

38. Fariha A.

Bronze
It could be 45,46,47
It can’t be 8,29,99
Silver
Faith has 27=27 once
Jesscica has two tens and 9 once =10+10+9=29
So
Jessica has 29
29>27
Silver
Right

39. Leon T.

Bronze it could be 44,46,47.
It can’t be 30,36,21.

Silver Jessica has the highest number cause she has 29 altogether.

40. Muhammad J.

Bronze
The number can be 44 47 48 49 it can’t be 4678

Sliver
Faith has 27 ones which means that she has got a number which is 27 but Jessica has 20 tens and 9 ones which makes 29 So Jessica has the biggest number.

Gold
Habib Is right because if you add 50 to 40 the answer would be 90 Also if you add 20 to a 10 the answer would be the number 30 which the tens is the number 0.

Platinum

Isla is correct because 7 lots of 10 means that she has 70 p and she has 32 p which makes the number 1.02£ That means she has two more ones Than the number 1.00 so the answer is correct.

41. Sadeen S.

Bronze
It could be 40 41 42 43 44 45 46 47 48 49
It can not be 10 20 30 50 60 70 80 90

silver
Faith has 27 ones = 27
Jessica has two tens and nine ones = 20+9= 29
29>27 So Jessica has the largest number

Gold

20+10= 30 21+10= 31
Yes, because the one of the ten is zero

Platinum

7 x 10 = 70 p
70p + 32p = 102 p
102p = £1.02 > £1
Yes she has more then £1

42. Zakariah D.

Platinum Challenge
Yes, Isla is correct.
7 x 10 = 70p
70 + 32p = £1.02
£1.02 is more then £1.00, by 2p.

Gold
Habib is correct, adding a ten to any single number (ones) does not make the single number (ones) change .
4+30= 34, 50+5= 55, 90+7= 97, 70+3= 73.

Silver
Jessica has more then Faith, Jessica has 29 and Faith has only 27 , so Jessica has 2 more ones then Faith.
Jessica has 2 tens and 9 ones
Faith has 2 tens and 7 ones.

Bronze
Alex could have 41, 49 or 47, he could not use the numbers 32, 100 or 96.
This is because he only has four tens so can use any number between 40 and 49. Alex can not use the numbers 32, 100 and 96 because they do not have four tens 32 has 3 tens, 100 has 10 tens, and 96 has 9 tens.

43. Aisha R.

32 plus 70 is 102p. Isla is right

44. Jaydon C.

bronze
it can be 44 46 47 but it cannot be 4 6 14.
