This problem has been inspired by “The Man”, a story by Raymond Briggs, which you might like to read. The Man is much smaller than you and me.

Here is a picture of him standing next to a mug.

Can you estimate how tall he is?

Can you think of something that you have at school or home that is approximately twice as tall as the Man?

What about something that is about half as tall?

How tall do you think the Man’s mug might be?

Can you estimate how many “Man mugs” of tea might fill one of our mugs?

I think the man is half an inch and the mug is 7cm.😏

The man is half 1 inch .

The tea Cup is egsactly a inch.

the mug it is 9cm long or it is the inch 5cm.

the man and the cup are the same size that is 4cm.

I think it would take 6 cups to fill my cup.

A television control is twice the size of the man and a rubber is half his size.

He was 5cm and the cup was 8cm.

He put 1 cups of mugs

8cm.the mug is7 iong

He was 10cm and the cup was big and he was littel then the cup.

Wow!
