Please share your strategies for the following problems.
Page 1 - Sudoku

Kenna - It really helped me to look at the 2x3 boxes and fill them out properly and then check over the rows and columns.
Danielle~ This one is very simple for me. Always look over the rows and columns to make sure you've had no repeats and that everything makes sense.

#1

Kenna - This is a tricky question you don't really have to think as much mathematically as logically.
#2
Kenna - It is a number that can be squared AND cubed so that limits your choices. Use the process of elimination to figure it out.
Danielle~ Read carefully: the number has to be even. Hint: Its higher than 20!

#4

Kenna - All you have to do is cut them into four pieces then lay them on top of each other to see which are the same size and shape. I did it mentally though. What you can do mentally is draw the divisions and then you can see the answer.
Danielle~ For this one, it was really hard for me to figure out which shapes would be even. But you have to remember that it isn't very simple- they are in pretty strange spots =)

#1

Kenna - This question might help: ' How many half's does it take to get a whole?'

#2
Kenna - Look for a pattern in the changing of values. How much does the value of the number change each time it grows larger?then add nine in where it fits. Like Mr. Kerlin said 'Think out of the box.' On this question you don't need to use that much math.
Danielle~ There is a very distinct pattern but not the most common one. Look at every number carefully and notice even the details. Its hard to get but its there.

#3
Danielle~ For me, it took not so long to figure this one out. First, figure out the mean, median and mode and then it should be easier to find out what x is.

#4

Kenna - Think doubles.

#1
Kenna - Try rotating the triominoes.

Danielle ~ Try more than just putting them in the corners. There are more places that work!


#2
Kenna - On this questions you need to think in fractions.

#1
Kenna - LCM is very helpful. Its like GCM but you start at the highest multiple and work your way down until there are no more options.

Danielle~ You need to think of how many buns and hot dogs come in a pack. Then try adding, subtracting, multiplying or dividing each of the common factors until you find one that works.

#2
Kenna - I used the same strategy as on number one.

Danielle~ This is the same idea as number one. Try the same strategy again.

#3
Kenna - Number one two and three are all alike so, see number one for advice.

#4
Kenna - First multiply the prices by the answers you got for 1, 2 and 3 then add them all together.
