There are three baskets, a brown one, a red one and a pink one. Together they are holding a total of ten eggs.
The brown basket has one more egg in it than the red basket.
The red basket has three eggs less than the pink basket.
How many eggs are in each basket?
Cut out ten eggs from paper and get three containers to represent the baskets. Have a go at trying some different combinations.
After a while ask this:
Why don't you choose a number of eggs for the pink basket? How many would be in the red basket, then? And how many in the brown basket?
Solutions are to be completed by Friday 28th April. Please post them into the Maths Challenge Box in the picture book library.
