The Beetle In Jack’s Beanstalk Who Wanted To Be A Singing Beatle

ant-2.jpg

The beetle in Jack’s beanstalk only ever wanted to be better at singing than the bee ! Although he liked the bee’s melody, he didn’t sound at all like him when he took music lessons. In fact, he sound more like an out of tune crow – his voice simply didn’t go ! He bought a record player … it quickly broke – whenever the beetle started to sing, all that came out was a croak ! In fact, everyone of the ladybirds awoke. The beetle hummed so loud, that soon, he drew a crowd (who quickly concluded that it shouldn’t be allowed !). The beetle first started on the low branches, then gradually as the notes increased, the beetles singing got higher and higher – and three moths were released ! The beetle huffed and puffed with all his might – but his notes were flat and just not right. Thinking it may get better yet, all the beetles joined a quartet – but a few off them sang so out of tune, it shook the branches of the trees and they fell into the badger’s set !

ant-2.jpg 2. 0.4 of 600 insects joined in the choir – how many is that ?

ant-2.jpg 3. When the branches of the beanstalk shook, one quarter of the 600 insects, fell into the brook – how many is that ?

ant-2.jpg 4. If Jack’s beanstalk has 25 branches, on average, how many of the 600 insects were on each branch ?

ant-2.jpg 5. The beetle sang 20 decibels higher than the ladybird, who sang at 15 decibels – how loud is that ?
