  • On the first sheet, it says n + 12 = 34, then it follows it by saying 12 + 34 = n, so n = 22. However it should say: 34 - 12 = n, resulting in n = 22. 
    However I do like the resource :)

  • Can I query some answer? I may be working them out incorrectly! On the sheet for the average attainment, where it gives problems and you have to generate the expressions, can I check answer number 3 - where the decorator works for £14 per hour, how many hours does he work for £89...I seem to get a lot of decimals in my answer!
    The other is question 3 on the HA sheet...15 is added to three times a number...

    • There are still 2 mistakes on the HA sheets - the questions say 1 number but the answers are using a different one. 3n 15 = 35 made their brains work well! Other than that, very helpful and useful!

    • This is still incorrect on the HA sheet. It still says 3n 15=35 and that n =10. It should say 3n 15=45. :)
