The Wheelbarrow’s Trip To Barrow

wheel.jpg

wheel.jpg 1/ The wheelbarrow could travel at a speed of 2.2 km/hour. If the trip to Barrow took 8 hours, how far away from Barrow was the wheelbarrow ? Write a mathematical equation to show your working out.

wheel.jpg 2/ The wheelbarrow could hold 50 bricks. How many trips would it need to carry 500 ? Write a mathematical equation to show your working out.

wheel.jpg 3/ 13% of the 50 bricks fell off the wheelbarrow – how many were left ? Write a mathematical equation to show your working out.

wheel.jpg 4/ Andy the Handyman was going to make a new wheelbarrow. He needed 6 metres of wood (each metre cost £2.50), 18 nails (each nail cost £0.12) and 1.5 cans of paint (each can cost £3.99). How much in total did he need to make the wheelbarrow ? Write a mathematical equation to show your working out.

wheel.jpg 5/ The wheelbarrow broke a wheel for every one – fifth of the journeys that it made. If it made 700 journeys – how many times did a wheel fall off ?

wheel.jpg 6/ The wheelbarrow could hold of 2 litres of water – when it rained it got 30 % full. How much water is that ?

wheel.jpg 7/ The wheelbarrow crashed 5 times every 3 km – if it travelled 30 km how many times did it crash ?

wheel.jpg 8/ The wheelbarrow took a detour on it’s trip to Barrow. It travelled 56 km to Whitbarrow, 67 km to Barrow – in – Furness and 89 km to White barrow – how far did it travel in total ?

wheel.jpg 9/ The wheelbarrow lost a nail, every 0.5 km of this journey, how many nails did it lose in total ?

wheel.jpg 10/ If the wheelbarrow carried 4 flowerpots and 8 watering cans – express this as a ratio, a fraction and a percentage.

wheel.jpg “We’ll” or “Wheel” or “Well” ?

Answers :
1/ 2.2 x 8 = 17.6 km
2/ 500 / 50 = 10
3/ 50 – (50 / 100 x 13) = 44
4/ (6 x £2.50) + (18 x £0.12) + (£3.99 x 1.5) = £15 + £2.16 + £5.98 = £23.14
5/ 700 / 5 = 140
6/ 2000 / 100 x 30 = 600 mls
7/ 30 / 5 = 10 x 5 = 50
8/ 56 + 67 + 89 = 212 km
9/ 212 / 0.5 = 424
10/ 4 : 8 ; one half ; 50%
