Extension work.

See if you can solve these word problems. Show how you worked it out!! (use brackets to expand numbers)

This week we have been learning how to solve a stage 7 strategy, I had to explain how I got my answer in brackets.

  1. It rained 1.35 inches on Saturday and 1.98 inches on Sunday. How much did it rain on Saturday and Sunday combined? 3.33
(1+1=2)(0.3+0.9=1.2)(0.05+0.08=0.13.)

  1. There were 7.6 litres of water in Jacob's bathtub. Then 2.9 litres drained out. How much water is left in the bathtub? 4.7
7.6 - 2.9 = 4.7
(0.7 - 0.2 = 0.5) + (.6 - .9 = 0.3)  

  1. A carpenter bought a piece of wood that was 6.15 meters long. Then he sawed 2.14 meters off the end. How long is the piece of wood now? 4.01
6.15 - 2.14 = 4.01
(60 - 20 = 40) + (0.1 - 0.1 = 0) + (.5 - .4 = .1)

  1. A chef bought 4.2 kilograms of almonds and 7.8 kilograms of pecans. How many kilograms of nuts did the chef buy in all? 12
4.2 + 7.8 = 12
(40 + 70 = 110) + (0.2 + 0.8 = 1)

  1. It snowed 8.9 inches on Monday and 3.9 inches on Tuesday. How much did it snow on Monday and Tuesday combined? 12.8
8.9 + 3.9 = 12.8
(80 + 30 = 110) + (0.9 + 0.9 = 1.8)

  1. It rained 0.97 cm on Monday. On Tuesday, it rained 0.4 cm less than on Monday. How much did it rain on Tuesday? READ CAREFULLY-THIS ONE WILL TRY AND TRICK YOU!  1.05

0.97 - 0.4 = 1.05
(0 - 0 = 0) + (0.9 - 0.4 = 0.5) + .7

  1. Omar spent Saturday picking berries at a berry farm. In the morning, he picked 3.61 kg of berries. In the afternoon, he picked 2.4 kgs. How many pounds of berries did Omar pick in all? 6.01
3.61 + 2.4 = 6.01
(30 + 20 = 50) + (0.6 + 0.4 = 1) + .1

  1. A bee colony produced 0.91 pounds of honey, but bears ate 0.9 pounds of it. How much honey remains? 0.01
0.91 - 0.9 = 0.01
(0 - 0 = 0) + (0.9 - 0.9 = 0) + .9

  1. Oscar bought 5.87 pounds of melon and 3.18 pounds of cherries. How much fruit did he buy in all? 9.05
5.87 + 3.18 = 9.05
(50 + 30 = 80) + (0.8 + 0.1 = 0.9) + (.7 + .8 = 1.5)


  1. Vince mixed 0.8 grams of salt into a pot of soup he was cooking. Before he served the soup, Vince added 0.25 grams of salt. How much salt did Vince put into the soup in all? 1.05
0.8 + 0.25 = 1.05

(0 + 0 = 0) + (0.8 + 0.2 = 1) + .5

Math problems.

WALT add and subtract numbers involving decimals
Make sure you show how you worked it out! Using brackets ( ) to expand numbers out

  1. 3.4 + 6.7 = 10.1
(3 + 6 =9) (0.4 + 0.7= 1.1)

  1. 12.8 + 9 =21.8
(12+9=21) (0.8+0.0=0.8)

  1. 23.2 + 38.5 = 61.7
(20+30=50)(3+8=11) (0.2+0.5=0.7)

  1. 10 + 0.7 = 10.7
(10+0=10) (0.0 + 0.7=0.7)

  1. 47.5 + 61.8 =109.3
(40+60=100)(7+1=8) (0.5 + 0.8=1.3)

  1. 18 + 4.8 =22.8
(10+0=10)(8 + 4=12) (0.0 + 0.8=0.8)

  1. 33.5 + 7.6 = 41.1
(30+0=30)(3+7=10)(0.5+0.6=1.1)

  1. 68 + 12.3 =80.3
(60+10=70)(8+2=10)(0.0+0.3=0.3)

  1. 19.5 + 19.5 =39
(10+10=20)(9+9=18)(0.5+0.5=1)

  1. 172 + 17.2 = 189.2
(100+0=100)(70+10=80)(2+7=9)(0.0+0.2)


  1. 23.3 + 4.4 = 27.7
(20+0=20)(3+4=7)(0.3+0.4=0.7)

  1. 101 + 110.1 = 211.1
(100+100=200)(0+10=10)(1+0=1)(0.0+0.1=0.1)

SUBTRACTION!!!!!

  1. 8.3 - 6.6 = 2.3
(8-6=2)(0.3-0.6=0.3)

  1. 13.7 - 9 = 4.7
(13-9=4)(0.7-0.0=0.7)
4.7

  1. 29.9 - 10.5 = 19.4
(20-10=10)(9-0=9)(0.9-0.5=0.4)

  1. 10 - 4.7 = 6
(10-4=6)(0.0-0.7=0.0)

  1. 40.4 - 1.9 =39.5
(40-1=39)(0.4-0.9=0.5)

  1. 11.6 - 3.8 =8.2
(11-3=8)(0.6-0.8=0.2)

  1. 37.2 - 3.1 =34.1
(37-3=34)(0.2-0.1=0.1)

  1. 68.4 - 22.3 =46.1
(68-22=46)(0.4-0.3=0.1)

  1. 30 - 17.5 = 13.05
(30-17=13)(0.0-0.5=0.05

  1. 262 - 26.2 = 236
(262-26=236)(0.0-0.2=0.0)

  1. 503.3 - 54.4 =449.1
(503-54=449)(0.3-0.4=0.1)

  1. 903 - 130.8 = 773.3
(903 - 130 =773)(0.0-0.3=0.3)
