Christmaths Advent Calendar 2013: Day 71 minute read

This year’s Christmaths Advent Calendar will have a question for every day in December up to and including Christmas Day, each one featuring a new mathematical challenge.

Some teachers are sitting at a round table ready to enjoy their Christmas dinner.

MR PITTS is two along from MISS JOYCE, who is sitting next to MRS WILSON.
MRS VOCE is also sitting two along from MISS JOYCE.
MR PITTS has MRS SCOTT on one side and MRS LEE on the other.

Where is everyone sitting?

Mr Pitts currently teaches Computing to the whole school along with some other subjects during teacher's PPA time. He runs this website and makes sure it all works smoothly, most of the time!

      Look at the row with 5 santas and 3 trees = 13. The santas have to equal two, and the trees one. Go from there… look next at the row with trees, santas and snowmen equalling 19.
