Good morning class, all ready to work hard?
You all did so well yesterday.

I will check first thing, lunchtime and late afternoon for PMs. Otherwise I will be on here all day. grin

Today's teaser involves Gummy Bears. If you solve it correctly, you can eat the bears, as a reward! grin.

Please give the values and the TOTAL for the equation

Gummy Bear = ?
Lollipop = ?
Lime Gummy = ?
Ring Pop =?
Total =?

There is a wee bonus buy today! A visual teaser. wink

I can’t do it this morning Miss. I can work out the others but can’t get the ring!

Bathsheba Wed 10-Jun-20 10:03:07

dragonfly just look at the middle line: ring = bear divided by ring. Switch it round so it's a multiplication instead, i.e. bear = ring x ring.

Sorry I haven't been in with the apples, class.
My consultant phoned with some good news about my new treatment.
I'm going into hospital at some point in the next few weeks....I hope.
Risky, but necessary. my spirits have lifted! It does mean I will be shielding even longer, but that's a small price to pay!

Bathsheba gets the golden apple for being first. Class swot again! grin
