Some tripods and bipods flew from planet Zeno.

At least two of each of them have landed on Earth.

 

Tripods have 3 legs.

Bipods have 2 legs.

There are 23 legs altogether.

 

How many Tripods are there?

How many bipods are there?

How many Tripods are there?

How many quadpods are there?

 

Can you find 2 different answers?

    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!

  2. 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

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

    silver challenge: (i) 2 Tripods=6 legs
    6 quadpod=24 legs
    Total=30 legs

    (ii) 6 Tripods=18 legs
    3 quadpods=12 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

    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

    Tripods have 3 legs.
    Quad pods have 4 legs.

    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.

  10. 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!
