Mathsmate: Term 3, Sheet 2


Problem 22: Carl looked at the page numbers on the open book in front of him. The left and right page numbers added to 333. What were the page numbers?


Predict: I predict I will need to use division and addition in this problem.


Clarify:  nothing to be clarified


Find the big question: What are the page numbers?




I need to start by splitting 333 in half, because they need to be consecutive. Picture a book, the page numbers are consecutive,, aren’t they?

It is 166.5 but I will round that up to 167.


So I will round down to 166.




The mathematicians toolbxo strategy I used in this problem was break it into controllable parts.

Problem 22: The sum of two consecutive whole numbers is 97. What are the two numbers?


Predict: I predict that I will need to use division and addition in this problem.


Clarify: nothing to be clarified


Find the big question: What are the two numbers?




The first thing I did was divide 97 by 2= 48.5

but they are consecutive whole numbers.

So I rounded up to 49. But 49+50=99, not 97.

So I rounded down to 48. 48+49=97!

  2. So this means that ay like 8 = R so all you need to do is count backwards in the alphabet
  3. So let’s give it a go
  4. 7=Q
  5. 6=P
  6. 5=O
  7. 4=N …

As I walk down the narrow hallway I was reading the best book of my life as I mentioned earlier on nothing can stop me as I flip my page slowly my anxiety started to build up as I took my eyes of the book all too soon…


CRASH! I hit a pole as I fell to the ground my book flew from my hands faster than lightning all the pressure leaned onto the book it hit the dirty and dusty ground damaging the book crinkling the pages bending the bind.


When I picked up myself up of the ground I headed toward the book my injury was more serious than I thought My book and my imagination will never be the same
