# Solve Problems Involving Measures

In this worksheet, children will practise answering word problems involving measure.

Key stage:  KS 2

Curriculum topic:   Measurement

Curriculum subtopic:   Solve Four Operations Problems

Difficulty level:

#### Worksheet Overview

In this activity, we will look at some word problems involving measurement.

We will be using addition, subtraction, and multiplication to help us solve the problems.

Top Tip:

It sometimes can help to break the question down into simple steps and answer one part at a time.

Remember to include the unit of measure in the answer.

Let's get started.

A bus journey into town costs £3 per person.

Three children go into town on the bus.

How much money do they need altogether?

We need to find 3 lots of £3 to find the answer

3 + 3 + 3 = 9

They need £9 altogether.

If they pay with a £20 note, how much change will they get?

We know they spend £9, so we need to subtract this from £20 to find the answer.

20 - 9 = 11

The following questions will involve different types of measures including length, mass, and more money questions.

Good luck!
