Week 352 (5th July 2024)

Scarlett works for a family run business making picture frames.  

Today she needs to make 35 picture frames for an order.  

Scarlett uses 4 nails to make each frame.  

She has 3 boxes of nails and there are 48 nails in each box.  

Has Scarlett got enough nails to make all 35 frames and will she have any spare nails?  


To find out how many nails she has in 3 boxes: 48 x 3 = 144 nails  

To find out how many nails she needs: 35 x 4 = 140 nails  

Therefore, she does have enough, with 4 extras.
