Maths Logic Problems

The Lower Juniors have been having a go at solving some logic problems in their Big Problem work.  This week their homework task is to solve a new problem but also to have a go at posting some problems of their own for other Junior children (and their teachers!) to solve.  Lower Juniors, we look forward to the challenge!

    Here’s an example of a more simple one to get you started! Clara, Betsy, Tom and Dean were all born in 1998. Their birthdays are the 28th June, 19th January, 4th November and 30th April but not in that order. Use the clues below to work out who was born when:

    • Clara’s birthday is the next one after Tom’s
    • It is a girl who has a November birthday
    • Betsy’s birthday is on the last day of a month

    There are two doors; one leads to death and one leads to freedom but they both have guards. One always lies and the other one always tells the truth but you don’t know which ones which.
    You can ask the guards one question but what question?
    Sort the words out below and you will find the answer!

    the would other which guard threw me the tell was right to door go

    write down the words seperately to help!

    There are 2 exits to a life of fear and lonliness and 1 exit to the best life you have dremed of. However, you are unable to know which door is which! There are math answers on each door, and you can choose the answer to freedom. You are given this question:

    What is 12 x 3 + 22 – 3?

    The doors answers are:




    Choose wisely…..
