Sports Day Measuring Maths

At the school's sports day, the children had a long jump competition.

• Zain jumped 1/2m further than Aadi
• Jala jumped 15cm further than Adeel
• Jannath jumped 0.6m further than Malak
• Mahmud jumped 23cm further than Jala
• Amina jumped 3/4m further than than the second placed child
• Shakeem jumped 1/4m less than Mahmud
• Shada jumped 0.8m further than Shakeem
• Aadi jumped 0.15m less than Jannath
• Malak jumped 40mm less than Shada

So, can you use the clues to write down who won and the other positions

Extra:

• What was the average jump?
• if each child had a second jump, which was on average 10% further, what would be the average 2nd round jump?

Remember:

• Check the wording in the clues to make sure you are doing the sum correctly
• Think about how many centimetres and millimetres there are in a metre
• To find an average, you must add all the distances together and divide by how many children there are​​​​​​​
• To increase a number by 10%, you must divide it by 10 then add the two numbers together
