Line Up Original Four numbers are equally spaced on a number line. Find the numbers represented by P and Q Home 75PQ120

Line Up Home Easier Let the outside numbers be both even or odd and find the middle number Let one of the outside numbers be odd and one even and find the middle Variation Make the biggest – smallest a multiple of 3 and find P and Q Make the biggest – smallest a multiple of 4 and find P, Q and R etc… Present the problem as split the line in the ratio 2:1 … orthe first gap is twice as large as the second Use negative numbers or decimals If 80 is in the middle then what could P and Q be? What is the link between P, Q and 80? P+Q = 2x80 Find P P80Q 3050Q 2028Q

Line Up Home Extension If P and Q are integers what could the outside numbers be? As above but insert P, Q and R equally spaced Looking at the diagram below what could P and Q be? What is the rule for finding pairs of values for P and Q? 2(Q-P)=120-Q or 3Q = 120+2P etc… Try different number of spacings Express the problem as a ratio: If PQ: QR = 3:1 then what could P,Q & R be? Include Negative numbers Decimals Fractions PQ120 PQR ½P¾
