Week beginning November 19th - Year 3 to 6
The Puzzling Sweet Shop
Ruby went into the sweet shop with 10¢ to spend. There were chews for 2¢, mini eggs for 3¢, Chocko bars for 5¢ and lollypops for 7¢.
What could she buy if she wanted to spend all her money?
Leo, Kai, Sara and Harry went into the shop too. They each had 20¢ to spend and they all spent all of their money.
Leo bought at least one of each kind of sweet. Which one did he have two of?
Kai spent his money on just one kind of sweet, but he does not like chews. Which sweets did he buy?
Sara bought the same number of sweets as Kai but she had 3 different kinds. Which sweets did she buy?
Harry chose 8 sweets. What could he have bought?
Rosie can buy:
One lollypop and one mini egg.
One chocko bar, one mini egg and one chew.
Leo bought two mini eggs. I know this because this is the only combination of sweets which add up to 20c where he bought at least one set of every sweet.
Kai bought 4 chocko bars. I know this because it is the only sweet that has a price that can divide into 20c exactly where chews are not included.
Sara bought 2 chocko bars, one lollipop and a mini egg.
Harry bought one chocko bar, one mini egg and 6 chews.
