Unless the table was round There are 6 ways

4 on one side and 1 on the other.

3 on one side and 2 on the other.

5 on one side and 0 on the other.

0 on one side and 5 on the other

1 on one side and 4 on the other.

2 on one side and 3 on the other.

1)60-20%= 12

60-12= £48

2) 40-10%=4

40-4= £36

3) 55-16= £39

So, the second offer is the best as it’s the cheapest

Sorry the 600 is in the wrong place it the 6 needs to be in the hundreds column and the 0 needs to be in the tens column also the over 0 needs to be in the units column.

The one that is wrong is:

124

Bronze

Bronze is wrong because twentyfour is in the wrong place also the four needs to be in the units colum and two needs to be in the tens colum.Also 6×20=120 and the wrong answer is 6×20=112.

The right answer is:

124

If the table has a circle shape there wouldn’t be any possibilities. However, my answer is applicable to a square table that has four sides:

Possibility 1: 1,1,1,2 (on four sides respectively)

Possibility 2: 2,2,1,0

Possibility 3: 3,1,1,0

Possibility 4: 4,1,0,0

Possibility 5: 3,2,0,0

Bronze

The calculation is incorrect because 6 x 20 is 120,not 112

and the number 24 should be in the Tens and Units column.

124 x 6 = 744

Silver

There are 7 ways.

3 on 1 side and 2 on the other.

2 on 1 side and 3 on the other.

4 on 1 side and 1 on the other.

1 on 1 side and 4 on the other.

5 on 1 side and 0 on the other.

0 on 1 side and 5 on the other.

1 on your right,2 on your left and 2 on your front.

Gold

£60 with 20% off is

60-12=£48

£40 with 10% of is

40-4=£36

£55 with £16 off is

55-16=£39

The best offer is £55 with £16 off because more money has

been taken of than the other offers and I could save the

rest of my money.

The final answer for this question (which is 736) is incorrect because the correct answer is 744. Some parts of the question are correct and some are incorrect. The correct parts of the question are (6×4=24 and 6×100=600). However, the wrong part of the question which made the total wrong is (6×20=112). See below my answer:

2)40×10=400

400/100=£4

3)55-16 =£39

If I go to a shop I will choose the second offer (£40 with 10% off) because it is the cheapest.

this is wrong because the tens are in the hundreds collom.

It’s £40 with 10% off because £60 with 20% off is £48 because you count in six times table so 6 is 10% of the six times table because it is like 6×2=12 but it is 20% because the clue is the number that you are not doing you’re. Times table is how much % you’ve got but just add the place value so 6×2=12 so it’s 12 pounds off so it equals £48.Next is £40 with 10% off so it is 4×1=4 so its £4 off which is £36 and last one is £55 with £16 off which is £39 so it is £40 with 10% off

Silver

There a five ways

1 2 3 4 5

2 3 4 5 1

3 4 5 1 2

4 5 1 2 3

5 1 2 3 4

Those are the five ways

Bronze

It’s wrong because 4×6=24 so that is correct

Next is 20×6=120 but it says 112 so that is wrong

Finally its 100×6=600 so that is right and the adding up is right but just 20×6 let you down to get the answer wrong.

Gold

£55 with £16 off is the best offer because £60 with20% off gives a saving of £12 and £40 with 10% off gives a saving of £4.

Silver

If I seated my guests using the long sides of the table their would be 6 possibilities.

4 on the left side and 1 on the right side.

3 on the left side and 2 on the right side.

2 on the left side and 3 on the right side.

1 on the left side and 4 on the right side.

5 on the left side and 0 on the right side.

5 on the right side and 0 on the left side.

Bronze

The sum is wrong because your digits are in the wrong place,24 ment to be in the tenths and units column.so the 24 is above the 12 in 112.

And your 112 and 600 are in the right place.

You didn’t put your numbers in the right place but you got your sum correct.

GOLD

The best offer is 55 with 16% off because 16×4=56

The good offer is 40 with 10% off because 10×4=40

The wors offer is 60 with 20% off because 20×3=60

GOLD

The best offer is 55 with 16% off because 16×4=56

The good offer is 40 with 10% off because 10×4=40

The wors offer is 60 with 205 off because 20×3=60

sorry i did two

Bronze

The calculation is wrong because, 6 multipled by 20 is 120 not 112. In your calculation your addition is right however, 24 is in the wrong colum and the correct answer is 744

sorry my second comment was wrong

40 off 10 is the best deal because that means you can spend more if you were only was going to spend £20.00

Gold

the 2nd deal is the best because deal 1 equals £40 and the first one equals £38.

Silver

3’on one side 2 on the other.

2 at the front 3 at the side.

5 on 1 side.

1on one side 4 on the other.

2 on each side and one by himself.

Bronze

The answer is wrong because

6 x 20 = 240 then

124

x __6

2 4

1 2 0

6 0 0

= 744

Gold

And the second is £30

BRONZE IS WRONG.

The bronze is wrong because 124×6=

4×6=24

20×6=120

100×6=600

So the answer is 744 and the other one gave 736.

Gold

The best offer is £55 with £16 off because £16 will be off and I could save the rest of the money.

Silver

To seat five guests on one table you could do:

• 3 guests on the right hand side and 2 on the left hand side

• 3 guests on the left hand side and 2 on the right hand side

• 4 guests on the left hand side and 1 on the right hand side

• 2 guests on the right hand side then 2 more guests on the left hand side and then 1 guest on the other side. (This table will be in a rectangle shape)

Bronze

The calculation is incorrect because the number 24 is in the wrong column. The real answer is 744.

Silver

Five people could sit on one table,by 3 people on one side and 2 people on the other. Or you could have 1 on one side and 1 on the other than to on one side and to on the other.

Gold

40 pounds with 10% of is the cheapest because it is cheaper than the rest

GOLD

£60 divided by 100 x 20 = 12

60-12= 48

£40 divided by 100 x 10 = 4

40-4=36

£55 divided by 100 x 16 = 8.8

55-8.8=46.2

So percent wise 20% offer is the best and price wise £40 offer is the best because we only spent £36.
