My Naughty Son Maths Question

smart thinkers from Team 5 PES on Vimeo.
Jack and Ray were at the rugby. Ray’s team was winning
so Jack decided to give Ray a problem to deflate his ego a
bit. So Jack said “Did you know that today is my three
sons’ birthday?” “How old are they?” Ray asked taking
the bite. “I’ll give you a hint. The product of their ages is
36 and the sum of their ages is 13,” Jack replied. “That’s
no help,” said Ray. So Jack weakened and gave him
another clue. “O.K. My youngest son is very naughty.”
“Nothing to it,” exclaimed Ray and he told Jack the
correct ages of his sons.

Restaurant questions.


The Pizza Place in my town has three

tables of the same size. The Chicken
N Chips restaurant has four of the
same sort of table.
The Chicken N Chips can just seat 24
people. How many people can The
Pizza Place seat?
Now a third of the seats at The Chicken N Chips were
empty and a half of the places at The Pizza Place were
empty. If 18 more people wanted to eat out, how many
would have to be turned away from the two restaurants?

Cross country story

Standing watching the little kids running to be the best. Seeing the course that I would be doing today for cross country on Thursday. It was a huge run but I was up for it. When I saw them running I was warming up to not pull a muscle. when I start running. It was the years 2 girls run and I saw my sister running through the wind. And her hair moving everywhere I was cheering for her on the side line. I saw then speed off where I couldn't see them in site.

Then I see no one else running and they were getting the years 3 boys run ready. We had new rules this year. The year 3 ran off and speeding to be first to finish. I waited till my run was ready to start. Watching all the races one by another all the child run past me faces tied wanting to win looking like angry puffing for breath..all the year 7 and 8's were cheering go go and saying their names.

Later on it was the year 7 girls turn to run. It was the year 7 boys next and I was one of them. I started to walk up to the start line to begin my run.waiting at the line waiting till the girl get fewer away from as when we start so if we do past the girl. I was feeling butterflies but I was only thinking of winning and tilling my family.

We were all ready to blast off across the field to begin running on the reserves and doing 2 laps around it. I did my 2 laps and I was tired running for water to the finish line my mum gives me cookies and chips my friends laugh and they said you eat that food and you're still fast and I said because I just pasty myself and I was happy it was over.
