In this worksheet, students will solve some word problems involving measures.

'Practise Solving Word Problems Involving Measures' worksheet

Key stage:  KS 2

Year:  Year 5 Maths worksheets

Curriculum topic:   Measurement

Curriculum subtopic:   Solve Four Operations Problems

Difficulty level:  

Worksheet Overview

In this activity, we will be using all four operations to solve problems involving measure.


Things we need to know:

60 minutes = 1 hour

1,000 ml = 1 litre

1,000 g = 1 kg

100 cm = 1 m


Let's have a look an an example:


Bananas cost 13 p each.




Zac has £1.60

How many bananas can he buy and how much change will he get?



£1.60 = 160p (100 p = £1)

160 ÷ 13 = 12 r 4

Zac can buy 12 bananas and will have 4p change.


In this question, we needed to convert pounds to pence, divide and find a remainder!

Why don't you have a go at some questions using all four operations now!
