Maths problem of the week!

This weeks maths problem: 

Sally has baked some buns. She counted her buns in 4’s and had 3 leftover. She counted them in fives and had four left over. How many buns has Sally got?

This week we have drawn pictures and used counters to help us to count in 3s and 4s. Perhaps some objects or drawing pictures will help you to solve this! If you have a go at this problem, bring in your work or a picture of your objects for our maths wall and earn a dojo!

    1. I broke the question up.
    2. I written the 4s up to 10 x 4 =40.
    3. I added 3 to the 4s.
    4.I written the 5s up to 10 x 5 =50 .
    5.I added 4 to 5s.
    6. I noticed that 19 was in the +3 and +4 and I knew Sally had 19 buns .
