Just about to do the above test with DS, read through the q's & this is Q4:
'Hannah made some biscuits for a party.
She put them all out on plates.
Each plate has the same number of biscuits.
How many biscuits could Hannah have made?'

Surely there is not enough information here??? The answer could be any number from 2, assuming there are at least 2 plates!
This must be a mistake? The answer booklet says the answer is 21.
Please put me out of my misery if I've missed something!

Too easy to over think this one. Take a look at the answers there is only one it can be that can be divided equally. Think prime numbers.

we had the same wobble, but realised that we were just reading too much into it as well.

a good example of using the answer sheet though
