number talks

World problems using the number 8

Panikeke is the island version of a fried donut. The local bakery put 4 Panikeke in each pack that they sell. If they sell 8 packs how many Panikeke have, how many Panikeke have they sold,

32 because 8x4=32

The All blacks are the New Zealand rugby union team. During their rugby training the all blacks use 48 cones. If 8 all black players helped pick up all 48 cones and all 8 of them pick up the same amount of cones, how many cones does each all black player pick up?

6 because 48 divided 8=6

            Extra for earlier finisher

There are 7 days in one week. Panmure shopping centre open up a new barber shop and shop owner says that only 8 customers visit his barber each day of the week (no more than and no less than). How customers would visit the new barber shop in each one week?
56 because 8x7=56

Tamaki primary school have an egg race day and 72 students have signed up for the race. If there are 8 teams and they have the same amount of student in each one, how many students will be in each team?
