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
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.
