14th March: Puzzle of the Day & Today's Numeracy Week Events

10th – 14th March is Numeracy Week here at Thomas Rotherham College and we have a number of events (many with cash prizes) running throughout the week.

Each day this week there will continue to be a Maths Puzzle of the Day competition where one lucky student can win £10 each day. 

Today’s puzzle is ………………..

During a holiday it rained on 13 days, but when it rained in the morning the afternoon was fine, and every rainy afternoon was preceded by a fine morning. 

There were 11 fine mornings and 12 fine afternoons.  How long was the holiday?

All students are encouraged to have a go at solving the puzzle to be in with a chance to win £10.

Entry forms can be collected from the LRC – and all entries should be submitted in the LRC before the end of each day.

Good luck!
