  # Solve Multiplication and Division Problems Related to Capacity

In this worksheet, students will answer simple multiplication and division questions related to the capacity of a 10-litre bucket. Key stage:  KS 1

Curriculum topic:   Number: Multiplication and Division

Curriculum subtopic:   Solve Problems Using Multiplication/Division

Difficulty level:   #### Worksheet Overview

This bucket holds 10 litres of water. Example 1

How many buckets are needed to hold 50 litres of water?

10 x ? = 50

One way to find the answer:

1 bucket = 10 litres

2 buckets = 20 litres

3 buckets = 30 litres

4 buckets = 40 litres

5 buckets = 50 litres

A quicker way is to  use division to find the answer:

50 ÷ 10 = 5 buckets

Example 2

How many litres of water can be held by 3 buckets? Again, 1 bucket = 10 litres

2 buckets = 20 litres

3 buckets = 30 litres

It is quicker to use multiplication:

3 × 10 = 30 litres
