**Whenever she tried to run a marathon, **

**She ****fainted in the heat.**

**Lucy Lastic played badminton best,**

**Soon she was set for the cricket test !**

**Write a mathematical equation to show your working out to the following maths problems.**

** 1. If Lucy Lastic high – jumped 125 cm, then after practising, 10% higher – how high could she eventually jump ?**

** 2. If Lucy Lastic long – jumped 180 cm, 15% higher – how high could she eventually jump ?**

** 3. If Lucy Lastic hit a ball 100 times – and 5% of these hit the net, how many were good hits ?**

** 6. If Lucy Lastic performed 120 cartwheels and slipped 20% of these times, how many times is that ?**

** 7. If Lucy Lastic’s knicker elastic stretched in a ratio of 1 : 3, how big did a piece 50 cm become ?**

** 8. If Lucy Lastic’s knicker elastic stretched in a ratio of 1 : 4, how big did a piece 100 cm become ?**

** 9. If Lucy Lastic’s knicker elastic stretched in a ratio of 1 : 5, how big did a piece 50 cm become ?**

** 10. If Lucy Lastic’s knicker elastic stretched in a ratio of 1 : 2, how big did a piece 20 cm become ?**

**Luc or lus ? Which is the correct one to use ?**
