term 3 sheet 2 maths mate

A number of netball players are  standing in a circle. They are evenly spaced and the third player is directly opposite the eleventh player. How many players are there all together?

To work this one out I figured the number of players between 3 and 11. 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11

So there are 7 players between 3 and 11 so then there has to be 7 players before and after 3 and 11.

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16

Then you just add up all the numbers and the  answer is…..

 it is 16 netball players.
