Independent Practice: Multi-Step Word Problems (Challenging)
Solve the problems below. Check and make sure your answer is reasonable.
A moving company is hired to take 578 clay pots to a florist shop. The florist will pay the moving company a $200 fee, plus $1 for every pot that is delivered safely. The moving company must pay the florist $4 each for any pots that are lost or broken. If two pots are lost, four pots are broken, and the rest are delivered safely, how much should the moving company be paid?
Information I can find by adding, subtracting, multiplying, or dividing the information I’m given: Number of pots lost/ broken? 4 + 2 = 6; Number of pots delivered safely? 578 – 6 = 572; Fee paid to company $200; Amount paid to company for safely delivered pots? $572 x 1 = $572; Amount company is charged for lost/ broken pots? $4 x 6 = $24; .
Final step to answer the question being asked: $200 + $572 – $24 = $748
Final answer written as a sentence: The moving company should be paid $748.
The school band is going to a competition. Five members play the flute. There are three times as many members who play the trumpet. There are eight fewer trombone players than trumpeters, and eleven more drummers than trombone players. There are twice as many members that play the clarinet as members that play the flute. There are four fewer tuba players than there are trombone players, but three more members play the French horn than play the trombone. The band director, his assistant, and six parent volunteers are also going. How many seats are needed on the bus?
Information I can find by adding, subtracting, multiplying, or dividing the information I’m given: How many play flute? 5; How many play trumpet? 3 x 5 = 15; How many play trombone? 15 – 8 = 7; How many drummers? 7 + 11 = 18; How many clarinet players? 2 x 5 = 10; How many tuba players? 7 – 4 = 3; How many French Horn players? 7 + 3 = 10; How many other people? 1 + 1 + 6 = 8.
Final step to answer the question being asked:
5 + 15 + 7 + 18 + 10 + 3 + 10 + 8 = 76
Final answer written as a sentence: 76 seats are needed on the bus.
