Maths Mate: Term 2-Sheet 3: Question 22

 

Predict: I think this is going to be about multiplication.

Read: How many numbers between 17 and 61 are divisible by 8.

Clarify: I had no words, sentences or phrases to clarify.

Big Question: How many numbers between 17 and 61 are divisible by 8.

Mathematical Toolbox: Have I seen a similar problem.

Solve: To solve this question I started counting by 8 I until I reached the closest number I could without going over 61. The answer is 5.

Summary: My prediction is right we did use multiplication to get my answer but I also used addition. I chose my strategy because I was given a question that was nearly exactly the same.
