BEA AND ELOISE’S MATHS REASONING

 

Do, then explain

 

Find out the populations in five European countries.

 

Order the populations in ascending sizes.

Explain how you ordered the countries and their populations

Spain=46,829,820

UK = 66,480,220

France = 67,431,000

Portugal = 10,291,126

Romania = 19,622,000

We had to order them in ascending order this is how we did it: Portugal, Romania, Spain, UK and France.

Portugal is the smallest because in the tens of millions the digit 1.   However in Romania the millions digit is 1 and for Portugal its 0 so therefore Portugal is smaller. We carried on this method to find the order.
