WALT use graphs, tables, and rules to describe linear relationships found in number and spatial patterns.
Tina and Tom were twins. Tina saves and Tom spends. Tom found a $20 note on Sunday evening and spent $2 a day starting on Monday. Coincidentally, Tina started work that Monday and gets $2.50 a day. How long would it be before Tina has more money than Tom?
This is how I worked it out:
I think that the answer is five days, because as you can see on my table I have circled Friday, which is when Tina first had more money than Tom. To form my answer, I drew up a table with the days of the week and the twin's names. After that I counted up in $2.50 on Tina's row and then counted down by $2 on Tom's row. After that I had to find which was the first day Tina had more money than Tom, which was Friday. So that's how I got my answer, five days.
This is the SOLO Matrix I had. I think that I am at Extended Abstract. My next step is to check my Algebra test and check what I have to learn next.
