Please help trying to help my son with this and our answer is different to bond's answer.



This is from 9-10 book2. Paper 9 question 21

Wurzitts & daughters make super-wurzitts. Each super-wurzitts is 3m long. On the conveyor belt there is room for 11 super-wurzitts with a space of 1m between each pair of super-wurzitts. How long is the conveyor belt.

Thanks

11 x 3m = 33m gives the total length of the super-wurzitts if they were laid end to end.
If the wording means that there is 1m between each super-wurzitt then there are 10 spaces each 1m long = 10m (11 objects will have a total of 10 spaces between them)
So the total length is 44m.

the wurlizters are in pairs, so only 5m is needed between 11 of them.
38m in total!

Finger trouble on my part, I meant to type 43m not 44m! :oops:

faitaccompli - totally agree with you, I couldn't decide if a super-wurzitt was already a pair because it had two things in it (a wurzitt and a daughter) - a bit like a pair of socks! Or whether two super-wurzitts together make a pair - I now know it was the latter!
