Today in numeracy, Y4C were using their investigative skills! The children were given a range of problems and had to make different totals using a selection of numbers. The children’s mathematical brains were working overtime as they used team work and resilience to help answer their problems.
The children continued to investigate as they explored the problem below:
A farmer overlooked his field of chickens and sheep. He saw 26 heads and 74 legs. How many chickens were there? How many sheep were there?
Can you work out the answer?
