Paul Over and Neil Down – The Aeroplane Pilots

aeroplane.jpg

Paul Over and Neil Down were two aeroplane pilots, who were always flying over, up, down and around
… Usually they were found five thousand feet above the ground.

Neil Down called Paul Over to come and see if he could take cover …
Neil Down refused quite politely,
Saying he was doing his aeronautic homework nightly.

Paul Over and Neil Down were soon off flying all over town.
Paul Over was best at reading the map …
So Neil Down settled down in the back seat for a bit of a nap.

Neil Down asked Paul Over to slow down,
Saying his were maps were getting overthrown.

Paul Over pulled over in a lay – by …
To see what the problem was and ask Neil Down why.

aeroplane.jpg 1/ If Neil Down flew at a speed of 250 km/hour, how long did it take him to fly 1000 km ?

aeroplane.jpg 2/ If Paul Over made four stops in a 1550 km journey, at which points did he stop ?

aeroplane.jpg 3/ If Neil Down flew twice to Athens, four times to Grenada, six times to Paris and eight times to Amsterdam :

a) Express this as a ratio
b) What fraction of the flights were to Grenada ?
c) What decimal of the flights were to Paris ?
d) What percentage of the flights were to Amsterdam ?

aeroplane.jpg 4/ Neil Down bought a return ticket to Paris that should have been £199 but there was a 15 % discount. How much did he actually pay ?

aeroplane.jpg 5/ Paul Over flew at a height of 4500 km above sea – level for most of the journey, but for 25 km, flew 15% less than that. How high was that ?

Answers :
1/ 1000 / 250 = 4
2/ 1550 / 4 = @ 387.5 @ 775 @ 1162.5 @ 1550
3/ a) Athens : Grenada : Pais : Amsterdam = 2 : 4 : 6 : 8 = 1 : 2 : 3 : 4 b) 3/ 4 / 20 = 1 / 5 th c) 6 / 20 = 0.3 d) 8 / 20 = 40 %
4/ 199 – (199 /100 x 15 = 29.85) = £169.15
5/ 4500 – (4500 / 100 x 15 = 675) = 3825
6/ a) over ground – 4500 / 100 x 45 = 2025 b) over water – 4500 – 2025 = 2475
7/ a) 15 / 75 = 3 / 15 ths b) 15 / 75 = 0.2 c) 20 %
8/ 3 + 18 + (2 x 18 = 36) = 27
9/ 100 000 / 500 x 45 = 9000 litres
10/ a) 300 / 5 x 3 = 180 seats b) 180 / 300 = 9 / 15 ths c) 180 / 300 = 0.6 d) 60 %
