**Challenging Practice**

Question 1.

The estimated difference between two numbers is 60. Find two numbers that when rounded to the nearest ten, have a difference of 60. Use the numbers in the box.

Answer:

After rounding the numbers to the nearest ten, they will be as below.

140 130 60 140 70 60

By seeing the above numbers and to get an estimated difference between any two numbers is 60, the possible combinations will be 130 and 70 (130 – 70 = 60).

So, the two numbers and **130 and 70**.

Question 2.

When a 3-digit number is divided by a 1 -digit number, the estimated quotient is 50. Think of two possible numbers that can give this quotient. Then check if your answer is correct.

Answer:

The three digits numbers are 100, 150.

The one digit numbers are 2, 5.

When a 3-digit number is divided by a 1 -digit number, the estimated quotient is 50.

**100/2 = 50**

**150 /3 = 50**

Question 3.

A given number is a multiple of 4. It is between 6 and 1 5. It is a factor of 16. What is the number?

Answer:

The numbers which are multiples of 4 and between 6 and 15 are **8 and 12**.

As it also should be a factor of 16, The required number should be **8**.

Question 4.

When a 3-digit number is rounded to the nearest ten and to the nearest hundred, the answer is the same. What is one possible number that fits this rule?

Answer:

The one possible number that fits the rule is **199**.

If 199 rounded to the nearest tens its 200 and rounded to the nearest hundred its 200.

Question 1.

Mr. Chan bought some pencils for a group of students. If he gives them 2 pencils each, he will have 10 pencils left. If he gives them 3 pencils each, he will have none left. How many students are in the group?

Answer:

There are **10 students** in the group.

If he give 2 pencils each, that’s 20 pencils, but he has 10 left.

2 x 10 = 20

30 – 20 = 10

If he give 3 pencils each, that’s 30. No pencils left over.

3 x 10 = 30

30 – 30 = 0
