What size steps could they have been counting in?

Ans 46.
It is a good word problem related to factors. “They each count on in steps of a different size” and “The first number that both John and Ali reach is 120” actually means “there is no common multiple” before they reach (common number) 120. Furthermore, “They each count on in steps of a different size” means that their numbers are different.

The logic is to find all possible factors first for 120 and see which ones do not overlap i.e. don't hit a common number before reaching 120.

(2, 60) but 2 X 30 = 60 = 60 X 1 ....so ruled out
(4, 30) but 4 x 15 = 60 = 30 X 2 …….so ruled out
(6, 20) but 6 x 10 = 60 = 20 X 3 …….so ruled out
(8, 15) 8 x 15 = 120 = 15 X 8 is the answer
(10, 12) 10 X 6 = 60 = 12 X 5 …….so ruled out

The confusing factor combination is (3, 40) which also reach 120 without hitting any common number. Wondering why that is not the answer and will wait for other members to throw some light.

Total length of fence is 8.5 m. You have to get a combination of panel (2m) and post (10cm i.e. 0.1m) to make a total of 8.5. But remember that there are posts between all panels and also one each at end of the fence.

Consider the most straightforward scenarios of 2 post and 1 panel i.e. Post|Panel | Post|
2 post + 1 panel = 2 + 2 (0.1) = 2.2m which is far below 8.5

The hint lies in the decimal part of 8.5 i.e. 0.5 which actually indicates that 0.1 should be multiplied by 5 to make it 0.5. So I’ll try 5 post which will require 4 panels.

(4 X 2m) + (5 X 0.1m) = 8.5m

One plant cost £1.00. therefore n plants will cost 1 X n i.e. n

This can be easily understood by putting numbers. For example 5 plants will cost 5 X £1 = £5, 7 plants will cost 7 X £1 = £7 therefore n plants will cost 1 X n i.e. n (algebra)

Now to put n plants you need 1 hanging basket which cost £4.

The total cost is

“cost of plants” i.e. n plus “cost of basket” i.e. 4

Which book are these from??
