Silver: Philip jump 1653Cm and Winner jump 18.39M
1653/100 =16.53M so 18.39 – 16.53 = 1.86M
The winner jump further than Philip for 1.86M

2. Arjun Mattu

1000ML=1L 789235ML=MORE THEN 700L SO THE ANSWER IS NO

3. Daniel Harrold

bronz 1430+135=1565

4. Saif Raja

Gold:

The tank that is new wont be able to hold the same amount because when you convert 789435 ml to liters you need to divide by 1000 so
789435 divided by 1000 equals 789.435 l.This means that 789.435 is bigger than 700 l and it will not be able to fit in the new tank

6. Sarah Keister

This is what you have to do.I think of a number i times it by 3 and half it, times it by 4 my answer is 36. what is my number?

7. Ellen Keister

This is what you have to do so you get 1. Then you. Add 2 then David by 10 and it make 1102 . That is the answer

8. Kaamilah Khan

Bronze. 1430+135=1565

9. Mohammed Khuzayfah Khan

Gold:

I think that the oil will not fit in the tank because when you convert 789435ml to Litres you need to divide by 100and it will become 789.435L.

10. Sara Mohamed

Bronze
James is 1565mm and Jodie is 135cm.
I think the answer is 1.565 because I work it in my head.

• Raul Gunici

The truth

12. Fardosa Shamba

1430+135
=1565

13. Leena Daud

Bronze:

14. Ibrahim El Safi

You basically take away 18.39m with 1653cm here is a example: 7 13
1839cm
– 1653cm
=

0186cm

when you take away 1839 and 1653 the number 3 in 1839 turns into 13 and the number 8 tuns into a 7.In the example,I converted the 18.39m into 1839cm

many thanks{Ibrahim Elsafi} i have done the silver challenge

15. Anas Mohammed

Bronze
1430+135

16. Sumaya Hassan

James is 1565 higher than Jodie because
+ 1430
+ 135
1565 = 1565
Bronze

• Karenza Mahtani

Try again Sumaya – look at the units of measure. KM.

17. Armaan Mehmood

BRONZE 1430 MM = 143 CM

143 – 135 = 8 CM
JAMES IS 8CM TALLER

• Karenza Mahtani

Well done Armaan – try the Silver Challenge. KM.

18. Sana Akhalwaya

1430
+135
1565=1565

• Karenza Mahtani

Try again Sana – look at the units of measure. KM.

19. Tyrese Agbortarh

Sliver answer: first you need to divide 1653cm by 100 and the answer should be 1.653 then then you take away 18.39 by 1.653 and the answer should be 16.743

1430-135=1205
Bronze

• Abdulahi Ahmed

Bronze

1540-135 = 1405 the answer for bronze is 1405.

Gold; A factory tank holds 789435ml of olive oil. The owner decides to put in a new tank which will hold 700l. Will the oil fit in the new tank?

21. Anthony Dacosta-Reid

Silver:
The answer for silver is 34.92.

22. Mehek Shah

Gold; A factory tank holds 789435ml of olive oil. The owner decides to put in a new tank which will hold 700l. Will the oil fit in the new tank?

The tank won’t hold the oil.1 liter =1000 ml.Then I divided 789435ml by 1000 which = 789.435 liters.700 liters is smaller than 789.435 liters.So that is how I know 700l won’t hold the right amount of olive oil.

• Karenza Mahtani

Brilliant Mehek – make sure you are spelling litres correctly please! :)

23. Vivek Chand

gold
789.435 divide by 1000

• Karenza Mahtani

789.435 what? Can it fit into the new tank?

24. Nidal Mohammed

The tank cannot hold 789435ml because 789435ml is larger than 7000l.

25. Amina Abbas

1430
135
1565

• Karenza Mahtani

Try again Amina – look at the units of measure. KM.

26. Shane O'Meara

Bronze:

Silver:
The answer is 349.2 m I think this is wright because I answered it in my head

Gold:
I think the answer is 789.435l I think it’s this number and I think it’s wright because I divided by a hundred so I moved my numbers two placeholders because in a hundred there is 2 place holders I worked this out on a place value grid

• Karenza Mahtani

Answer the questions Shane! Well done for attempting all 3 challenges, but you need to look again at all of the questions and check you are calculating correctly, using the correct units of measure and that you answer the question IN FULL! :)

27. Salman Raja

Bronze- the answer is 1565 because:

1430+
135
1565 :)

28. Halima Memi

Bronze-140 135 =1565
silver-34.92
Gold-The oil won’t fit in the tank because 789435ml is bigger then 7001 so the oil can’t fit in the tank.

29. Jaspreet Rani

bronze
jame is 1565 taller than jodie.

30. Marhia Haider

Gold

The tank wont hold the oil . I know this because there are 1000ml in a l so that will make 789.435 . the tank only holds 700 l

Bronze: 1565
Silver: 34.92
Gold: it wouldn’t fit in there

32. Aleena Dean

Bronze:

James is 1430 mm tall, and Jodie 135 cm
How much taller is James than Jodie?

I think you need to look at this again, what does difference mean Aleena?

• Aleena Dean

Miss Frankish, I have now found out my mistake I’m am really sorry of that. By the way the question you asked me about what difference means I know the answer, the answer is difference means takeaway.

• Karenza Mahtani

Try again Aleena – you have not read the question properly. KM

33. Asim Munir

James is 1430 mm tall, and Jodie is 135 cm.
How much taller is James than Jodie?

The answer is 1565, because you add 1430 mm and 135 cm.

Phillips Idowu jumped 1653cm in the triple jump at the London Olympics.
The winner jumped 18.39m.
How much further did the winner jump?

• Karenza Mahtani

Try Bronze Challenge again – look at the unit of measure and answer the question!

34. Abdirahman Mumin

James is 1430 mm tall, and Jodie is 135 cm.
How much taller is James than Jodie?

bronze:the answer is 1565.I know this because you add the units and then the tens.

35. Rayne Fuller-Mapp

Silver-34.92
Bronze-1565

36. Muhammed Akinwale

bronze 1430mm tall 10mm=1cm
1430mm= 1430/10=143cm.
james is 143cm
jodie is 135cm
143-135=8cm
james is 8cm taller than jodie.

• Karenza Mahtani

Absolutely brilliant Muhammmed! :)

37. Fareedah Samira

The oil will not fit in the new tank as the tank capacity is too small for the oil to fit in. To show this :
1 Litre= 1000 Millilitre so to find 789435 in litre,you divide 789435ml by 1000 which is 789.435 Litres. The new tank only holds 700 Litres and the oil for the factory tank is 789.435 Litres so it will overflow and not fit in the new tank.

38. Alina Hussain

bronze

silver
34.92

gold
The oil will not fit in the new tank because 700L is way smaller than 789435ml. So there is no way that oil will fit in that tank.

39. Tamim Sherif

Bronze
1,430 millimeters is equivalent to 143 centimeters.
How much taller is James than Jodie?
Jodie:135cm
James:143cm
taller is James than Jodie:143cm-135cm=8cm.

sliver

1,653cm is equivalent to 16.53m.
winner jumped 18.39m
How much further did the winner jump?
18.39m- 16.53m=1.86m.

Gold
789,435 milliliters is equivalent to 789 liter
Will the oil fit in the new tank? Explain how you know.
Yes because the new tank is 700l and the factory tank 789,435 ml=789l, 789l>700l.

• Karenza Mahtani

Brilliant Tamim well done! :)

40. Plaiza Karan

Also I know this because 700l is smaller than 789.435 so there is no possible way to fit it in a tank which holds 700l.

41. Plaiza Karan

The oil will not fit in the tank I know this because when converting ml to l you have to divide because if you times you make it bigger and that will make it wayyyyyyyy to big so when you divide you move to the right not the left, left is for when you are time-sing the number.
So if you are dividing 789435ml into litres the answer will be 789.435l so I don’t think it will fit inside the tank.

42. Samira Ali

Bronze
Silver
Gold
I think that the oil will not fit in the tank.

43. Laiba Wajid

Bronze
The answer is 1565. I know this because I worked it out in my head.

Silver
The answer is 34.92. I used my creative thinking to work this out.

Gold
I think it wont be able to go into the tank

• Astrid Ngodji

Bronze] 1565

Silver] 34.92

Gold] It wont take too much oil

44. Mehrish Iqbal

Bronze

The answer is 1565. I know this because I worked it out in my head.

Silver

Gold

I think it will not be able to fit in the tank.

45. Naseer Omayah

Gold:
I think that the oil will not fit into tank because when you adapt 789435 ml to liters a you need to divide.So what I done is I drew the place value grid and I moved it 2 places to the right.After that I found out the answer was wrong and the real answer is 789.435l.
Silver:the answer is 1565 because when you add when you add 16.53 to 18.39 it equals 1565

46. Puri Simran

The oil won’t be able to fit in the tank. When you convert 789435ml into litres it won’t be 700l that it is incorrect. The right answer is 789.435l. I know this because when I worked it out, on a place value grid I knew I had to divide so I divided. I divided by a hundred so I moved for the whole number two place values to the right.

After I had done that, I had looked at the answer, and straight away I knew that it won’t be correct.

This is my answer that it is incorrect.
