Some trains stop at every station and others are express trains. All stopping trains take the same time between each station as each other.a) How many minutes does it take to travel between Edinburgh and Kircaldy? b) Complete the times in the boxes in the table above for the stopping train that leaves Edinburgh at 15:34 c) How much longer does the stopping train take than the express train for the journey from Edinburgh to St Andrews? d) James arrives at Edinburgh airport at 13:05. It takes him 27 minutes to get from the plane and collect his baggage. It then takes him 45 minutes to get to Edinburgh railway station. How long does he have to wait for the next train to St Andrews? 9. For each shape draw a rectangle that has the same area as the shape on the left. The first one is done for you. 10. James was given £15 to buy supplies for the university year. He chose to spend it on pens and pencilsa) If James buys 5 pens and 7 pencils, how much money will he have left? b) If instead James buys a set of 5 pencils, what is the maximum number of pens he can buy? c) If instead James ends up with £2.80 left of his money how many pens and how many pencils did he buy? 11. 12 boy scouts will eat 30 loaves in 4 days.a) How many boy scouts will eat 60 loaves in 4 days? b) How many days will it take 6 boy scouts to eat 30 loaves? c) How many loaves will 3 boy scouts eat in 8 days? 12. Put these numbers in order from smallest to largest:Answer: < < < Smallest Largest 13. There are four unknown positive whole numbers.The mean of the two smallest numbers is 3.The mean of the three smallest numbers is 5.The mean of all four numbers is 7.All the numbers are different and odd.What are the four numbers? 14. Ten green bottles hanging on a wallTen green bottles hanging on a wallIf one green bottle should accidentally fall,There’d be nine green bottles hanging on the wallNine green bottles…If the first bottle fell at ten past five in the morning (5.10am) and the others fell down at five minute intervals, at what time would the last bottle fall? 15. The dotted line is a line of symmetry of a shape, which is partly drawn. On the grid complete the shape. 16. Here are five cards with numbers printed on them.The cards can be placed in order to form a 5-digit number.For example the smallest number that could be made with all 5 cards is: a) Using all 5 cards what is the largest possible odd number b) Using all 5 cards what is the number that is closest to 50,000? c) Using only two of the cards, what is the largest possible prime number? d) Arrange any three of the number cards to give the largest possible answer to this multiplication Answer: × 17. For each of the following questions you need to find a whole number between 0 and 100 that has the following properties.a) When the number is divided by 4 the remainder is 0.When the number is divided by 7 the remainder is 6.When the number is divided by 5 the remainder is 0.What is the number? b) When the number is divided by 5 the remainder is 4.When the number is divided by 6 the remainder is 0.When the number is divided by 7 the remainder is 0.What is the number? c) When the number is divided by 2 the remainder is 1.When the number is divided by 3 the remainder is 1.When the number is divided by 5 the remainder is 0.When the number is divided by 7 the remainder is 1.What is the number? 18. Place each whole number from 1 to 8 inclusive in one of the blank boxes below to make the calculations correct. The calculations read left to right and top to bottom. Time is Up!
