Year 5 have been using their fractions knowledge to solve a problem designed by mathematicians at Nrich. You can find the original problem here:

What solutions can you spot?

The problem tells that we are to make a chain of 20 links, with a range of different links of different lengths. To solve this problem, we had to work with a partner to create multiple different proofs or solutions that were equivalent to 1 (or 20/20).

Year 5 used excellent team work skills and resilience to solve this very tricky problem! How many solutions can you find?
