Problem Solving Friday – Place Value

1. How many numbers can you write with 8 in the hundreds place?

Option 1 – Only write numbers in the thousands (4 digits)

Option 2 – Come up with all the options up to numbers in the ten thousands (5 digits)

You could write out all of the different options… But is there a quicker and easier way to find this out? Which strategy would be best to use?


2. How many numbers can you make using the digits 1, 2, 3 and 4? You can only use each digit once in each number.

Remember, you need to use all the digits once in each number… there are many possibilities… Which is the best strategy to use from your toolbox?


3. Odd Ball Numbers.

The object of this activity is to find the sum of the first 25 odd counting numbers. One way is to add 1 + 3 + 5…continuing until you have added the first 25 odd numbers. However, this is too much work for the problem. Look for patterns and combinations to find a much easier way to solve this. Apply what you have learned from this problem and find the sum of the first 25 even counting numbers.
