Ricky & The Rickety Rickshaw

wheelbarrow2.jpg

Ricky had a rickshaw, that wobbled quite a lot. All because of the rickety wheel that Ricky’s rickshaw had got. Ricky oiled the chain and tried again. Off fell a screw – Oh ! What a pain ! He pumped up the tyres and fixed the fuse wires. But Ricky’s rickshaw was really a hopeless case, it still didn’t get him from here to any other place. Ricky’s rickshaw was so old and cheap, whenever he went to pedal off, the rickshaw collapsed in a heap.

6. 7 / 5 = 1.4 km

7. 6 x 5 x 60 = 1800 turns

8. 5 (75 x 1000 / 250 = 300) = 1500

9. 5 (35 / 0.2 = 175) = 875 stones
