Maths Mate Term 3 Sheet 1 Problem Solving

Predict: I predict that this question will be about adding numbers to get a certain value.

Read: The sum of two consecutive whole numbers add up to 97. What are two numbers?

Clarifications: None

BIG Question: What are the two numbers?

Solution: 97 is the number we want to get to. It is in the nineties, so we need two equal numbers that add up to ninety. 45 +45 = 90. Now we need two consecutive numbers that add up to seven. 3 + 4 = 7. So we add three to one 45 and 4 to the other, so the two consecutive numbers that we end up with is 48 and 49, so that is your answer.
