## Maths

Let's warm our brains up this morning then!

As I know that 6O are OBSESSED with skittles, I thought we could do a little bit of Maths with them this morning (6T I know you prefer M&Ms so you might want to swap to them).

Using a pack of skittles (you can choose the size) have a go at answering the questions below. If you answer them all correctly then maybe your treat can be to eat them all

1) What fraction of the packet are orange? Can this be simplified?

2) What fraction of the packet are red? Can this be converted into a percentage?

3) Which colour occurs the most? What fraction is this?

4) Add up the green, red and purple ones, what fraction of the packet are these three colours? What would this be as a percentage?

6) Which colour are you least likely to get?

7) What fraction of the packet are not green?
