Maths

Following on from the work in class yesterday, you are to investigate products.

Choose 3 or 4 digits and investigate how you can re-arrange the digits to find the highest product (answer). Practice the written methods that you have used this week to show your working out. Is there a rule? Does the rule work with a different set of numbers?

For example; I have chosen  7, 4 and 5.

I am going to work out; 74 x 5, 75 x 4, 45 x 7 etc. to find out which calculation has the largest product (answer) Think about where the digits appear. Does the same rule apply if I choose other numbers such as 8, 9 and 3?

If you need me to explain further come and see me on Monday and we can work through the investigation together.
