rabbit-3.jpg

Jesse James The Cowboy was a real dab hand with cattle,
In fact, cattle was the only thing about which Jesse James every did prattle.
As quick as saying “jumpin’ jack rabbit” … he’d round up buffalo and shot a gun
… It didn’t take a minute for him to get everything done.
But although Jesse James did everything in a dash …
He still wasn’t really very good at maths …

Can you help ?

Answers :
1. 1500 / 15 = 100 x 15 = 1500 minutes / 60 = 25 hours
2. 5 / 0.5 = 10
3. 7.5 x 12 x 4 x 3 x 2 = 2160
4. 7 x 4 x 3 = 84 litres
5. 1000 / 10 = 100
6. (6 / 2.5 = 2.4) + (6 / 4 = 1.5) = 3.9 hours
7. 25 / 3 = 8.3 r
8. 60 x 3 x 4 = 720
9. 50.00 – (25.99 + 4.99) = $19.02
10. 8 / 4 x 6 = 12
11. 50 – (50 / 100 x 40 = 20) = 30
12. 100 – (100 / 10 x 6 = 60) = 40
13. 600 – (120 + 18) = 462
14. 52 x 3 = 156
15. 54.2 + 67.4 + 23.1 + 1.9 = 146.6 km
