Jack Beanstalk’s Run – Away Runner Bean

bean1.jpgbeans.jpg

The run away runner bean ran so fast, in a race he never once came last..
As the run away runner bean went jogging past,
All that was seen was a 100 miles an hour green splash.
The run away runner bean ran over the hill …
The last I heard, he was running still.
The run away runner bean didn’t stop …
No wonder it was known as the most light – footed veg in the crop.
He ran so fast that his shorts started to drop !
The run away runner bean sweat rather a lot …
Very soon, he was soon overcooked …
And every one of his buttons had become unhooked !
He longed for a quiet, cool life in a freezer,
Which he considered would be considerably easier !

Answers :
1. 26 / 2.5 = 10.4 hours
2. 27 x 15 = 405
3. 12 / 4 = 3 cm
4. 39 – (39 / 3 = 13) = 26
5. 45 + (2 x 4 x 3 = 24) = 69 cm
6. 69 – (69 / 100 x 10 = 6.9) = 62.1 cm = 62 cm
7. 0.75 x 5 = £3.75
8. 1.99 – (1.99 / 100 x 20 = 0.398) = £1.59
9. 600 / 8 = 75 therefore, 75 : 225 : 375
10. 600 / 6 = 100
