You are 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:

Sam buys 7 apples at a cost of 33p each and 8 bananas at a cost of 19p each.

What is the total cost of the fruit purchased?

**Answer:**

Step 1: Find the total cost of apples: 7 x 33p = £2.31

Step 2: Find the total cost of bananas: 8 x 19p = £1.52

Step 3: Add the two amounts together = £2.31 + £1.52 = £3.83

With a question like this one, make sure you show your working out and carefully check each step.

Over to you now!
