## Chapter 10

### INTRODUCTION

At the beginning of Chapter 10 you made up an event for a Play Day for 54 students. Along with your event there are going to be lots of other activities, such as a beanbag toss and a relay race. All that playing and running around is going to make everybody very hungry.

In pairs, organize the food and drinks for a group of the students who will be attending the Play Day. First you must calculate the number of people in your group. Here is the information you need to find out how many people will be in it.

•  There are 54 students coming to the play day.

•  There are 9 groups.

•  Each group will have one teacher in it. Remember, teachers get hungry too!

Visit different websites to choose the food and drinks you will serve. Calculate how much you will need.
