A student uses 42 sheets of card to make three equal-sized cubes.
00:00:07.390 --> 00:00:10.260
How many sheets do they use for each cube?
00:00:11.700 --> 00:00:15.470
The student uses a total of 42 sheets.
00:00:16.310 --> 00:00:20.380
This enables them to make three equal-sized cubes.
00:00:21.360 --> 00:00:25.340
We need to calculate how many sheets are used for each cube.
00:00:26.280 --> 00:00:29.090
Three divided by three is equal to one.
00:00:30.030 --> 00:00:37.350
This means that we need to divide 42 by three to work out the number of sheets required for one cube.
00:00:38.510 --> 00:00:42.570
We can divide 42 by three using the bus stop method.
00:00:43.540 --> 00:00:47.300
Four divided by three is one remainder one.
00:00:48.350 --> 00:00:51.230
12 divided by three is equal to four.
00:00:51.800 --> 00:00:56.470
This means that 42 divided by three is equal to 14.
00:00:57.480 --> 00:01:01.110
14 sheets of card are used for each cube.
00:01:01.990 --> 00:01:05.540
We can check this by multiplying 14 by three.
00:01:06.400 --> 00:01:09.330
10 multiplied by three is equal to 30.
00:01:10.150 --> 00:01:13.000
Four multiplied by three is equal to 12.
00:01:13.930 --> 00:01:18.930
This means that 14 multiplied by three is indeed 42.
00:01:19.990 --> 00:01:26.310
We can therefore conclude that each cube does indeed use 14 sheets of card.
