Welcome to this, the second of our Medium level Eleven Plus maths quizzes on Solving Problems. Solving Problems is something you will have to do, not only in your lessons and exams, but also in real life situations. The more you practice your skills, then the easier you will find the answers.
Imagine that you are planning to walk from Land's End to John o' Groats, a distance of 874 miles. If you want to know how long it will like you, you will need to divide 874 (the distance in miles) by the number of miles you can walk in one day (let’s say 30 miles).
874 ÷ 30 = 29.133 days.
Unusually, you would have to round this answer up, rather than down. That’s because even a small part of a day is still an extra day. So, your journey from Land's End to John o' Groats will take you a total of 30 days.
