So, you're going to spend some valuable time revising **worded problems.**

Worded problems will appear in both of the **SATs reasoning papers.**

The problems will ask you to use all four number operations (addition, subtraction, division and multiplication).

It's very important that you show your working out for these questions because you may get a mark for it, even if your answer is wrong!

For each of the **reasoning tests**, you will have 40 minutes to complete it.

There are usually around 20 problem-solving questions in the reasoning tests.

Here is an **example** of the type of question you may find in a reasoning paper:

A lift can carry a weight of up to 250 kg

If James weighs 82 kg, Nick weighs 96 kg and Simone weighs 67 kg, can all of them travel together in the lift?

**Answer: **(You need to add together all three weights to find the total and compare to that number to 250 kg).

You can choose whichever method of addition you prefer, although it's a great idea to check a calculation like this using the column method of addition.

82 kg + 96 kg + 67 kg = 245 kg

So, yes! The lift can carry all 3 people at the same time.

Over to you now.
