We solved a difficult maths problem today in Class 6! Take a look and see if you can work it out. We used pictures and calculations to help us. Good Luck!
When Miss Land was at High Adventure she noticed a tree in the forest nearby called a Deca Tree.
A Deca Tree has 10 trunks,
and on each trunk there are 10 branches,
and on each branch there are 10 twigs,
and on each twig there are 10 leaves:
Miss Land heard from one of the High Adventure instructors that one day a woodcutter came along and cut down one trunk from the tree.
Then he cut off one branch from another trunk of the tree.
Then he cut off one twig from another branch.
Finally he pulled one leaf from another twig.
How many leaves were left on the tree then?
Hint – your answer should be a 4 digit number!
– Miss Land.
