Problem 1 :
Find out how many counters are in each of the boxes. Remember to take away the same amount on both sides so the balance is kept.
Solution :
I will take away 2 from each side. This leaves me with:
3 x ❒ = 9⬤
1❒ = 9/3
1 ❒ = 3
Creating the equation,
3 x 3 + 2 = 11
Problem 2 :
Solution :
I will take away 3 from each side. This leaves me with:
2 x ❒ = 12 ⬤
1❒ = 12/2
1 ❒ = 6
Creating the equation,
2 x 6 + 3 = 15
Problem 3 :
Solution :
I will take away 4 from each side. This leaves me with:
2 x ❒ = 10 ⬤
1❒ = 10/2
1 ❒ = 5
Creating the equation,
2 x 5 + 4 = 14
Look carefully at each balanced scale and work out what the symbols equal
Problem 4:
Solution :
Given
18 + 5 ⬤ = 11⬤
Take away 5⬤ from both sides.
18 = 11⬤ - 5⬤
18 = 6⬤
1⬤ = 18/6
1⬤ = 3
Problem 5 :
Solution :
Given
49 + 3 ⬤ = 10⬤
Take away 3⬤ from both sides.
49 = 10⬤ - 3⬤
.
49 = 7⬤
1⬤ = 49/7
1⬤ = 7
Problem 6 :
Solution :
Given
60 + 4 ⬤ = 8⬤
Take away 4⬤ from both sides.
64 = 8⬤ - 4⬤
64 = 4⬤
1⬤ = 64/4
1⬤ = 16
Problem 7 :
Solution :
Given
36 + 2 ⬤ = 8⬤
Take away 2⬤ from both sides.
36 = 8⬤ - 2⬤
36 = 6⬤
1⬤ = 36/6
1⬤ = 6
