Maths: Tuesday Arithmetic

Here are 10 arithmetic questions for our maths today. Remember that these are just like the 4 questions we do usually do every day in class (except there is 10 of them!)

You should be able to get on with these independently. Answer these questions in your workbook.

If you really cannot do one, move on to the next one and come back to it later. Remember to check your working out carefully to avoid silly mistakes.

1.  5 × 4 × 10 =
2. 7,064 − 502 =
3. 62 + 10 =
4. 5,400 ÷ 9 =
5. 3,050,020 = 3,000,000 +  ?  + 20  (what is the value of the ?)
6. 5/7 + 3/21 =
7. 7 8 5 × 2 3
8. 99% of 200 =
9. 1/4 ÷ 2 =
10. 8827 ÷ 97

Now that you have completed the 10 questions, mark your answers using the document below.
