Problems of the Week 14th November
Nov 14, 2017
See if your lost boys and girls can answer our Peter Pan themed #problemsoftheweek:
Years 1 – 2: If Peter Pan can only fly for one hour each day, how many days will it take him to fly a journey that takes 6 hours?
Years 3 – 4: John is older than Michael. Wendy is older than John. If Michael is 3 years old and Wendy is 12 years old, could John be 120 months old?
Years 5 – 6: A fairy can fly 16 miles per hour. If the fairy leaves for Neverland at 8:03 PM and gets there at 7:33 AM, then how far away is Neverland?
Years 7 – 9: Wendy and the Lost Boys are taking turns reading each other a bedtime story. Wendy reads 50% of the story. Tootles, Nibs, Slightly, and Curly each read 50% of the number of pages that are left on each of their turns. Finally, the twins each read 50% of the remaining pages. What percentage of the story has been read by the time it’s the twins’ turn to read?
