**Answers :**

**1. 110**

**2. 60 mins / speed / distance = 60 / (2 / (150 + 150 + 50 + 50 = 400 m = 0.4 km) = 5) = 12 mins**

**3. 150 x 50 = 7, 500 sq metres**

**4. (12 x 2 = 24) – (12 / 6 = 2) – (12 / 3 = 4) = 18 players**

**5. 3.5 + 1.75 = 5.25 m**

**6. 100 – (25.99 + 5.99 + 2.99 + 3.99 = 38.96) = £61.04**

**7. 2 (50 x 50 = 2, 500 / 3 = 833.33) = 1,666.66 cubic cm**

**8. 50 + 15 = 65 cm**
