I am blogging this because it was so hard that it is number 1 for hardest maths task.
We are learning about Mass and capacity (measuring). It is the hardest because you have to work out really hard tasks and you were not allowed to use a calculator and you had to show your workings.
It took me a long time to finish this task and I got some of them right which made me feel good.
Next time with a task like this I would ask Mr Moriarty more questions because I only sort of understood it.
I am glad that I finished it and Maths is still my favourite learning task.

HOW MANY BISCUITS?
Gladstone School bought 200 cartons of biscuits to sell for fundraising. Each carton contained 15 kg of biscuits.
Each packet of biscuits in a carton weighed 250 g.
(1000 g = 1 kg)
a) How many kg of biscuits were there to sell? 3000 kg
- 200 times 15 = 3000
- 200 times 10 = 2000
- 2000 times 5 = 1000
- 2000 + 1000
3 times 4 = 12 250
3000 times 4 = 12,000
b) How many packets of biscuits were there? 12,000 packets
