There are 23 legs altogether.

How many Tripods are there?

How many bipods are there?

Gold

There are 6 Hexapods

There are 3 Octopods

I solved this by using division and multipacation

There are 2 Hexapods and 6 Octopods

There are 6 legs for Hexapods

There are 8 legs for Octopods

If you x 6 x 2 you will get 12

If you x 8 x6 you will get 48

And 48 add 12 is 60

That is two ways to get the answer!

• Suleman Khan

For the first one I X 6 by 6 which is 36 then I did 3×8 which is 24 and I added them together which is 60

2. Sami Mohammed

Bronze challenge

3 tripods
14 bipods

silver challenge

6 tripods

gold challenge

6 octopods
2 hexpods

3. Tameem Ali

6tripods equals 18 legs three quad pods 12 legs.
You need to have 6 quad pods and 2tripods.

4. Reece Simpson

bronze challenge

7 tripods and 1 bipod so 7 is 21 if times 3 by 7 then add 2 on
21 will be 23

silver challenge
6 quadpods is 24 and 2 trypods are 30

5. Hafsah Khan

bronze challenge: 5 Tripods=15 legs
4 bipods=8 legs
total=23 legs

silver challenge: (i) 2 Tripods=6 legs
Total=30 legs

(ii) 6 Tripods=18 legs
Total=30

Gold challenge: (i) 2 hexpods=12 legs
6 octopods=48 legs
Total=60 legs

(ii) 6 hexpods=36 legs
3 octopods=24 legs
Total=60 legs

How many Tripods are there?
How many bipods are there?

2 Bi pods and 3 tripods

I know this because 2 times 10 = 20 and 1times 3 = 3 so 20 +3=23

9. Yousaf Khan

Bronze
4×2=8
5×3=15
15+8=23

10. Maleeha Memi

Bronze:

You can have:
1) 7 tripods and 1 biopod
2) 1 tripod + 10 biopods
3) 5 tripods + 4 biopods
4) 3 triopods + 7 biopods

Hexpods have 6 legs.
Octopods have 8 legs.
There are 60 legs altogether.

How many Hexpods are there?
How many Octopods are there?

1st way

I think there are 3 octopods and 1 hexpod

2nd way

If you do 30 divide by 6 you should get 5.So there is five hexpods and 0 octopods

Some tripods and quad pods flew from planet Zeno.
At least two of each of them have landed on Earth.

Tripods have 3 legs.
There are 30 legs altogether.

1st way

I believe there are six tripods and 3 quads would equal 30 legs.

2nd way

I think that if you have six quads then you will need 2 tripods to have 30 legs altogether.

• Fatima Sheikh Naz

Silvr

if you multiply 3 by4 the answer will be twelwe so twlweee landed

• Mr Maguire

• Fatima Sheikh Naz

I think that there are 6: tripods landed and 3 quad pods .

GOLD CHALLENGE!:
There are 2 hexapods and 6 legs, if you times 2 by 6, you will get the number 12.
There are 6 octopods and 8 legs, if you times 6 by 8, you will get the number 48.
Add 12 and 48 and you will get the number 60.

There are 6 hexapods and 6 legs, if you times 6 by 6, you will get the number 36.
There are 3 octopods and 8 legs, if you times 3 by 8, you will get the number 24.
Add 36 and 24 and you will get the number 60.

2 ways to get the answer!
