1. 3 x 3 x 7 = 2. cheetah – 36 x 2 = 72 ; lion – 12 x 3 = 36 ; zebra – 123. jam – 20; meat – 40; cheese – 404. a) 20 x 15 x 10 = 3000 cubic cm b) 3000 – (3000 / 5 x 4 = 2400) = 6005. 500 – (30 x 10) = 200 mls 6. 80 – (80 / 100 x 80 = 64) = 167. 24 – (24 / 3 x 2 = 16) = 8cm

8. 7 x 3 = 21

9. One part – 5 therefore, tiger : lion : cheetah – 5 : 10 : 15

10. (15 x 5 = 75) / 3 = 25

11. 80 – (80 / 8 x 7 = 70) = 10

12. cupboard = 25; fridge = 50; table = 10; floor = 15

13. 200 / 12 = 16.6

14. (100 x 75 x 50) / (10 x 10 x 5) = 375 000 / 500 = 750

15. 75 x 750 = 56250 = £562.50
