Maths – Problem Solving!

We are continuing with some problem solving activities today. We are going to need to use our division and multiplication facts to help us solve these questions.

Challenge 1

Find at least one way to put in some operations signs (+, −, ×, ÷) to make these digits come to 100.

1    2    3    4    5    6    7    8    9  =  100

Challenge 2

This represents the multiplication of a 4-figure number by 3.

a multiplication of a 4-figure number by 3

The whole calculation uses each of the digits 0−9 once and once only.

The 4-figure number contains three consecutive numbers, which are not in order. The third digit is the sum of two of the consecutive numbers.

The first, third and fifth figures of the five-digit product are three consecutive numbers, again not in order. The second and fourth digits are also consecutive numbers.

Can you replace the stars in the calculation with figures?

Challenge 3

Are you curious about numbers? Can you use your mathematical skills to find some solutions to the problems below?

Can you order the digits 1, 2 and 3 to make a number which is divisible by 3?
And when the final digit is removed again it becomes a two-digit number divisible by 2,
then finally a one-digit number divisible by 1?  

Can you order the digits 1, 2, 3 and 4 to make a number which is divisible by 4?
And when the final digit is removed it becomes a three-digit number which is divisible by 3.
And when the final digit is removed again it becomes a two-digit number divisible by 2,
then finally a one-digit number divisible by 1?

Can you order the digits 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 to make a number which is divisible by 5?
And when the final digit is removed it becomes a four-digit number which is divisible by 4.
And when the final digit is removed it becomes a three-digit number which is divisible by 3.
And when the final digit is removed again it becomes a two-digit number divisible by 2,
then finally a one-digit number divisible by 1?

What systems are you using?
What do you know about numbers which can be divided by 3, 4, 5?
Now what about taking this further for digits 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6?
What do you know about numbers which can be divided by 6, 7, 8 and 9?

Good luck!
