Good morning class, here we are again, happy as can be, well as happy as we can in the circumstances.

Please DO NOT your answers, this allows others to have go. If you are keen to know if you got it correct, feel free to PM me.

Sorry the image is a bit skew-whiff.

Can you find the smallest possible number that is divisible by fifteen, which contains only ones and zeroes (e.g: 10, 11, 100)
You do not need a calculator to solve it, but a piece of paper would be helpful.

Good luck!

I missed out POST!
Please do not post your answers, hold your water, as my friend would say.

I have DD on the end of the phone, as I'm trying to post.
She wants to know how to dilute weedkiller!😱😰
Never mind the weedkiller, what about the protective equipment she will also need!

My paper looks like a fence with holes in, loads of 1111111011111 ......
But I have an answer Miss 🍏

I did use my calculator. I kept adding 15 until I came up with the answer.

Just to clarify, the image is misleading, no binary numbers involved.

CraftyGranny Tue 28-Apr-20 11:02:43

I'm in Doodle, Miss said you are trouble, and if I was your new friend then Gillybob might get jealous and start bullying me. I have worked out the sum though, I think, do you want to see?
I am now going back to my sewing machine to make some more masks for my family, ready for when they can go out. I have put Hepa filters in the masks, from a Henry vac, in them to keep them safe. Unused ones though, because the full ones are already in the bin
