2017 Advent Calendar: Day 18


Day 18

“Then the shepherds went back to their sheep, praising God and thanking Him for everything that they had seen and heard.”

Luke 2:20

Task (remember you can post your solution in the comments below):

A school are taking all the Year 5 and 6 children to a Christmas show in Edinburgh.

70 children are travelling. The ticket cost is £25 per person and the coach hire is £490 for each 45 seater coach.

  1. How much would it cost per person?

There is a special deal available for school parties. There is 1 free ticket for every 10 tickets bought.

  1. If the school took up this offer, what would be the new cost per person?
  2. If the coach leaves the school at 9:00, travels for 2 hours then stops for a 45-minute break before travelling for a further 1 hour and 20 minutes. What time do they arrive in Edinburgh?
