# Countdown – Part 2…

Posted On 13 Sep 2013

I have been so impressed with the response to the first Countdown question. Well done to those of you who got the correct answer!

So due to popular demand, here is another one to have a go at while you are eating your tea…

100, 1, 4, 4, 5, 7

Target: 413

I will pick three random winners from a hat on Monday, so make sure you have blogged your corrrect working before then. Remember you need to get the target number exactly to be in with a shout of winning a prize!

Best of luck!

How many ways can you get to the answer Mr Currie?

4×100=400

2×7=14

-1=13

400+13=413

4×100=400

5+7=12+1=13

400+13=413

4 x 100 = 400 7 + 5 = 12 + 1 = 413 .

100×4=400

400+7=407

407+5=412

412+1=413

or…

100×4=400

4×5=20

1×7=7

400+20-7=413

100 x 4 = 400 + 7 + 5 + 1 = 413 100 + 5 = 105 x 4 = 420 – 7 = 413

4X100=400

7+5=12

12+1=13

400+13=413

100×4=400 5+7+1=13 400+13=413

I enjoyed visiting your class the other day and listening to how much you enjoy maths, class 5.

Only one I’m afraid

4+ 100 =104 x 4 =416 -7= 409 -1 =408 +5 = 413

Good luck everybody!

My brain has been slow today HAHAHAHAHA! Now I am feeling better

WAHAHAHAHAHAH!

100 + 4 = 104 x 4 = 416- 7=409 +5 = 414 -1 = 413!

4×100=400 + 7 + 5 = 413

+ 1 = 413

I hope I get it right , I think it’s right!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Congratulations to Sophie, Lucy and Lewkas who were our winners from the draw!

Thanks Mr Mastrelli.

I know it is late but here’s my answer

5 x 4 – 7 =13

13 x 1 = 13

100 x 4 = 400

400 + 13 = 413

I’m excited for my first day on Monday!!!
