## 26 maths word problems for year 5​

Year 5 maths has a strong focus on multiplication, division, and fractions. As we cover a variety of year 5 maths questions together, pay attention to the methods we use, including breaking down fractions and using number lines to solve real-world word problems.

#### Multiplication

Answer: Sam bought 144 bottles of water. There are 12 bottles in a dozen. 12 x 12 = 144.

Answer: Mr. Rodger bought 1,600 juice boxes. 100 x 16 = 1,600.

Answer: Crystal has saved a total of 350 pence. 35 x 10 =350.

Answer: Jason will have 720 new Pokemon cards after two years. There are 12 months in every year, so in two years there are 24 months (12 x 2 = 24). 24 x 30 =720.

#### Division

Answer: Kim should fill Polly’s dog bowl 8 times a day.  480 / 60 = 8

Answer: The sunflower has been growing for 10 weeks. There are 100 centimetres in a metre, so there are 200 centimetres in two metres (100 x 2 =200). 200 centimetres divided by 20 is equal to 10.

#### Fractions

Answer: ⅛ + ⅛ + ⅛ + ⅛ + ⅛ + ⅛ + ⅛ + ⅛ = 6⁄8, so 8 people could have eaten ⅛ of a pie each or  ⅜ + ⅜ = 6⁄8, so 2 people could have eaten ⅜ of the pie each.
Answer: 1⁄9 + 1⁄9 + 1⁄9 + 1⁄9 + 1⁄9  = 5⁄9

Answer: Steve has £6.50 left over in his budget.
£11.00 + £12.50 + £20.00 = £43.50. £50.00 – £43.50 = £6.50
