Good morning all, the Bearded Dragon has decided not to cover my class today, as she has heard how tricky you all are, even for her! 😱. You have had a very narrow escape!

I borrowed today's puzzle from site called Anthony's Maths Mash up.
He did have some tricky puzzles, involving jelly beans, but I was struggling to work out the answers, so I left it for another day. blush

Hint, it's not as tricky as it looks. If you are finding it hard, I will come back later with some help.

Cor Miss I dont no whare to start wiv this one! But I will put my thinking cap on and try and werk it owt.

I'm thinking the bearded dragon might of bin a gud idea arfter all

I 💕 a good puzzle and look forward to seeing how the answer is worked out. It’s got me stumped - I’m going back to Sudoku Miss.

Think of how many squares are in the picture. What fraction is each colour of the large square.
Then apply the fraction to the question.

Saxifrage Tue 21-Apr-20 10:14:02

Green 105
Blue 80
Pink 25
Orange 40
