Each of these ten owls has a number. ne owl is the odd one out. Can you work out which one? You know these facts:
E actly 3 and only 3 numbers belong in the three times table

Mat, Milo and Mike Meerkat all share the same birthday, and on their most recent birthday Mike made the following observations:
Mat is twice as old as I am now
Milo is closer in age to Mat than I am in age to Milo
A year ago, Milo was twice the age that I was two years ago.
The sum of mine and Mat's ages in 21. a) Find three numbers that have a total
bigger than 260. Are there more? b) Find the 2 smallest numbers. Multiply

answer. d) Find the number that is 30 smaller than
another. Are there more? e) Find two numbers with a difference of
e actly 70. f) Which numbers over 40 are multiples of
5 and 10? In this grid, each animal stands for a number.
The numbers shown are the totals of the row or column of three. Find the missing numbers and say what number each animal stands for. Can you work out how old Mat, Milo and Mike are? The numbers in the circles add to make the numbers in the squares in the middle. Can you work out what the missing numbers are?
