Christmaths Advent Calendar 2013: Day 12

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.

Mrs Keeling bought three presents for Christmas. Can you work out how much they cost?

  • The first present and the second cost a total of £20
  • The second present and the third present cost a total of £22
  • The first and the last present cost a total of £12

For a harder challenge you could also try this one:

Miss Callow also bought three presents for Christmas. Can you work out how much they cost?

  • The first present and the second cost a total of £15.55
  • The second present and the third present cost a total of £16.40
  • The first and the last present cost a total of £18.45
