    I think the pictures on this ppt are really confusing because they are 3d so it looks like there are two lines to read. Also 0 is not at the bottom of the jug - most scales don't start at 0.

      Hi htuffnell,

      Thank you for your comment on the Twinkl website.

      The text on slide 10 appears on different clicks of the slideshow, which is why it appears overlapped on the previews down the side. If you click onto slideshow mode you'll be able to view the page properly.

      I hope that helps. if you have any further problems please get back in touch. I hope you have a lovely day! : )
