This is a level 4 number activity from the Figure It Out theme series.

Specific Learning Outcomes:

use mental strategies to solve problems involving addition and multiplication

Required Resource Materials:
FIO, Level 3, Theme: At Camp, Getting There, page 9
Activity:

Students will need to use the rules given for each operator and apply them to find the costs:
• Benny’s Buses: two one-way trips of 64 kilometres at \$2 per kilometre
2 x 64 x \$2 = \$256
• Saltwater Charter Boats: round trip of 3 hours at \$65 per hour
3 x 65 = \$195
• Fat Cat Tours: one return trip for 36 people at \$5 per person
36 x \$5 = \$180
• Kimbell Motors: two one-ways trips at \$50 plus \$3 per person
2 x [\$50 + (\$3 x 36)] = \$316
As an extension, you could suggest other possible operators to students, such as Amphibian Craft Ltd, which charges \$70 per hour. Its vehicle takes 1 hour to travel the 64 kilometres by road and 4 hours to complete a round trip to Màrama Island.

The cheapest option is Benny’s Buses (\$256) and the Fat Cat Tours boat (\$180).
