## 18 Word Problems For Year 5: Develop Their Problem Solving Skills Across Single and Mixed KS2 Topics

Emma johnson.

Word problems for Year 5 are a great way to assess pupils’ number fluency. By the time primary school children reach Upper Key Stage 2, they will be building on their knowledge and understanding of the number system and place value, working with larger integers. An increased understanding of the connections between the different maths concepts is crucial, as children will be expected to tackle more complex, multi-step problems.

It is important children are regularly provided with the opportunity to solve a range of word problems and Year 5 maths worksheets with reasoning and problem solving incorporated alongside fluency, into all lessons.

To help you with this, we have put together a collection of 18 word problems aimed at Year 5 maths pupils.

## Place value

Addition and subtraction , multiplication and division , fractions, decimals and percentages, measurement , why are word problems important in year 5 maths, how to teach problem solving in year 5, addition word problems for year 5, subtraction word problems for year 5, multiplication word problems for year 5, division word problems for year 5, fraction and decimal word problems in year 5, mixed four operation word problems, word problem resources, all kinds of word problems.

## Year 5 maths word problems in the national curriculum

The National Curriculum states that by Year 5, pupils should develop their ability to solve a wider range of problems, including increasingly complex properties of numbers and arithmetic, and problems demanding efficient written and mental methods of calculation. Children also begin to use the language of algebra for solving a range of problems.

By Year 5, pupils should be starting to gain confidence in solving more complex two-step and multi-step word problems, covering topics across the Year 5 curriculum.

Solve number and practical problems involving ordering and comparing numbers to at least 1,00,000; counting forwards or backwards in steps of powers of 10; interpreting negative numbers in context and rounding to the nearest 10,100, 1000, 10,000 and 100,000.

Solve addition and subtraction word problems and a combination of these, including understanding the meaning of the equals sign.

Solve problems involving multiplication and division, including using knowledge of factors, multiples, squares and cubes and scaling by simple fractions.

Solve problems involving numbers up to 3 decimal places and problems which require knowing percentage and decimal equivalents.

Solve time word problems and those involving converting between units of time and problems involving measure (for example, length, mass, volume and money word problems ) using decimal notation and scaling.

Solve comparison, sum and difference problems, using information presented in a line graph.

Word problems are an important element of the Year 5 curriculum. By this stage, children need to be building confidence in approaching a range of one, two and multi-step word problems . They require children to be creative and apply the skills they have learnt to a range of real-life situations.

Children need to be taught the skills for successfully approaching and tackling word problems. Reading the question carefully and identifying the key information needed to tackle the problem, is the first step, followed by identifying which calculations are required for solving it and deciding whether it will be helpful to draw a picture/ visual representation to understand and answer the question.

Using mental maths skills to round and estimate an answer is also very helpful for children to establish whether their final answer is realistic. Children need to also be able to calculate the inverse, to be able to check their answer, once the problem has been completed.

Here is an example:

A transport museum has 1243 visitors on Monday morning and another 1387 visitors in the afternoon. On Tuesday 736 fewer visitors go to the museum than who visited on Monday.

How many visitors were there altogether on Tuesday?

How to solve:

What do you already know?

- The number of visitors on Monday morning and Monday afternoon are given separately. They need to be added together to give the total number of visitors for Monday.
- ‘Fewer’ means I will need to subtract the number of fewer visitors on Tuesday from the total number of visitors on Monday.
- Column addition and subtraction will be needed to solve this question.

How can this be drawn/represented pictorially?

We can draw a bar model to represent this problem:

- To calculate the total number of visitors on Monday, we need to add 1243 and 1387 together. 1243 + 1387 = 2630
- The number of fewer visitors on Tuesday needs to be subtracted from Monday’s total: 2630 – 736 = 1894.
- The total number of visitors on Tuesday was 1894.

In Year 5, addition word problems can involve whole numbers with over 4 digits and decimal numbers. Children should be able to round number to check the accuracy and begin to solve two step number problems

## Addition question 1

Gemma picks two cards from the cards below and adds them together. She is able to make three different totals. What will they be?

2365 6281 9782

Answer (2 marks) : 12,147 16,063 8646

## Addition question 2

Ahmed adds two of these numbers mentally.

357 280 294 232

In his calculation, he exchanges twice to create one ten and one hundred. Write Ahmed’s calculation and work out the total.

Answer (1 mark) : 357 + 294 = 651

## Addition question 3

Change one digit in the calculation below, so that the answer is a multiple of 10.

Answer (1 mark) : 723 + 347 = 1070

Subtraction word problems in Year 5 require pupils to be confident subtracting numbers over 4 digits and problems involving decimal numbers. Pupils need to be able to round numbers to check accuracy and to use subtraction when solving mixed word problems.

## Subtraction question 1

A coach is travelling 4924 km across the USA It has 2476 km to go. How many kilometres has the coach already travelled?

Answer (1 mark) : 2448 km

Answer (1 mark): £15,798

In year 5, multiplication word problems include problems involving times tables and multiplying whole numbers up to 4-digits by 1 or 2-digit numbers. Pupils also need to be able to combine multiplication with other operations, in order to solve two-step word problems.

## Multiplication question 1

In this diagram, the numbers in the circles are multiplied together to make the answer in the square between them.

Complete the missing numbers.

Answer (1 mark)

## Multiplication question 2

Mrs Jones was printing the end of year maths test. Each test had 18 pages and 89 pupils were sitting the test. Mrs Jones also needed to print out 12 copies for the teachers and Teaching Assistants who were helping to run the test.

Answer (2 marks): £7920

Third Space Learning often ties word problems into our online one-to-one tutoring. Each lesson is personalised to the needs of the individual student, growing maths knowledge and problem solving skills.

In Year 5, division word problems can involve whole numbers up to 4 digits being divided by 1-digit numbers. Pupils need to understand how to answer word problems, when the answer involves a remainder.

## Division question 1

Tom has 96 cubes and makes 12 equal towers. Masie has 63 cubes and makes 9 equal towers. Whose towers are tallest and by how many cubes?

Answer (2 marks): Tom

Tom’s tower has more cubes. His towers have 1 more cube than Maise’s towers.

96 ÷ 12 = 8

## Division question 2

Answer (1 mark): 157 stickers

In Year 5, fractions word problems and decimals can include questions involving ordering, addition and subtraction of fractions. They can also involve converting between fractions and decimals.

## Fraction and decimal question 1

Isobel collected 24 conkers. She gave \frac{1}{8} of the conkers to her brother. How many conkers did she have left?

Answer (1 mark): 21 conkers left

\frac{1}{8} of 24 = 3

24 – 4 = 21

## Fraction and decimal question 2

Ahmed counted out 32 sweets. He gave \frac{1}{4} of the sweets to his brother and \frac{3}{8} of the sweets to his friend. How many sweets did he have left?

Answer (2 marks): 12 sweets

\frac{1}{4} of 32 = 8

\frac{3}{8} of 32 = 12

He gave away 20 sweets, so had 12 left for himself.

## Fraction and decimal question 3

Two friends shared some pizzas, 1 ate 1 \frac{1}{2} pizzas, whilst the other ate \frac{5}{8} of a pizza. How much did they eat altogether?

Answer (1 mark): 2 \frac{1}{8} of pizza

1 \frac{1}{2} = \frac{12}{8}

\frac {12}{8} + \frac{5}{8} = \frac{17}{8} = 2 \frac{1}{8} pizzas

Problems with mixed operations, or ‘multi-step’ word problems, require two or more operations to solve them. A range of concepts can be covered within mixed problems, including the four operations, fractions, decimals and measures. These are worth more marks than some of the more straightforward, one-step problems.

## Mixed operation question 1

At the cake sale, Sam buys 6 cookies and a cupcake . He pays £2.85 altogether. Naya buys 2 cookies and pays 90p altogether.

How much does the cupcake cost?

Answer (2 marks): 60p for one cupcake

How many biscuits did he buy altogether?

Answer (2 marks): 186 biscuits

2 x 48 = 96

3 x 30 = 90

96 + 90 = 186 biscuits

## Mixed operation question 3

The owner of a bookshop bought a box of 15 books for £150.

## Introduction

Mathematics can be fun if you treat it the right way. Maths is nothing less than a game, a game that polishes your intelligence and boosts your concentration. Compared to older times, people have a better and friendly approach to mathematics which makes it more appealing. The golden rule is to know that maths is a mindful activity rather than a task.

There is nothing like hard math problems or tricky maths questions, it’s just that you haven’t explored mathematics well enough to comprehend its easiness and relatability. Maths tricky questions and answers can be transformed into fun math problems if you look at it as if it is a brainstorming session. With the right attitude and friends and teachers, doing math can be most entertaining and delightful.

Math is interesting because a few equations and diagrams can communicate volumes of information. Treat math as a language, while moving to rigorous proof and using logical reason for performing a particular step in a proof or derivation.

Treating maths as a language totally eradicates the concept of hard math problems or tricky maths questions from your mind. Introducing children to fun maths questions can create a strong love and appreciation for maths at an early age. This way you are setting up the child’s successful future. Fun math problems will urge your child to choose to solve it over playing bingo or baking.

Apparently, there are innumerable methods to make easy maths tricky questions and answers. This includes the inception of the ideology that maths is simpler than their fear. This can be done by connecting maths with everyday life. Practising maths with the aid of dice, cards, puzzles and tables reassures that your child effectively approaches Maths.

Here are some fun, tricky and hard to solve maths problems that will challenge your thinking ability.

Answer: is 3, because ‘six’ has three letters

What is the number of parking space covered by the car?

This tricky math problem went viral a few years back after it appeared on an entrance exam in Hong Kong… for six-year-olds. Supposedly the students had just 20 seconds to solve the problem!

Believe it or not, this “math” question actually requires no math whatsoever. If you flip the image upside down, you’ll see that what you’re dealing with is a simple number sequence.

Replace the question mark in the above problem with the appropriate number.

Which number is equivalent to 3^(4)÷3^(2)

This problem comes straight from a standardized test given in New York in 2014.

There are 49 dogs signed up for a dog show. There are 36 more small dogs than large dogs. How many small dogs have signed up to compete?

This question comes directly from a second grader's math homework.

To figure out how many small dogs are competing, you have to subtract 36 from 49 and then divide that answer, 13 by 2, to get 6.5 dogs, or the number of big dogs competing. But you’re not done yet! You then have to add 6.5 to 36 to get the number of small dogs competing, which is 42.5. Of course, it’s not actually possible for half a dog to compete in a dog show, but for the sake of this math problem let’s assume that it is.

Add 8.563 and 4.8292.

Adding two decimals together is easier than it looks. Don’t let the fact that 8.563 has fewer numbers than 4.8292 trip you up. All you have to do is add a 0 to the end of 8.563 and then add like you normally would.

I am an odd number. Take away one letter and I become even. What number am I?

Answer: Seven (take away the ‘s’ and it becomes ‘even’).

Using only an addition, how do you add eight 8’s and get the number 1000?

Answer:

888 + 88 + 8 + 8 + 8 = 1000

Sally is 54 years old and her mother is 80, how many years ago was Sally’s mother times her age?

41 years ago, when Sally was 13 and her mother was 39.

Which 3 numbers have the same answer whether they’re added or multiplied together?

There is a basket containing 5 apples, how do you divide the apples among 5 children so that each child has 1 apple while 1 apple remains in the basket?

4 children get 1 apple each while the fifth child gets the basket with the remaining apple still in it.

There is a three-digit number. The second digit is four times as big as the third digit, while the first digit is three less than the second digit. What is the number?

Fill in the question mark

Two girls were born to the same mother, at the same time, on the same day, in the same month and the same year and yet somehow they’re not twins. Why not?

Because there was a third girl, which makes them triplets!

A ship anchored in a port has a ladder which hangs over the side. The length of the ladder is 200cm, the distance between each rung in 20cm and the bottom rung touches the water. The tide rises at a rate of 10cm an hour. When will the water reach the fifth rung?

The tide raises both the water and the boat so the water will never reach the fifth rung.

The day before yesterday I was 25. The next year I will be 28. This is true only one day in a year. What day is my Birthday?

You have a 3-litre bottle and a 5-litre bottle. How can you measure 4 litres of water by using 3L and 5L bottles?

Solution 1 :

First, fill 3Lt bottle and pour 3 litres into 5Lt bottle.

Again fill the 3Lt bottle. Now pour 2 litres into the 5Lt bottle until it becomes full.

Now empty 5Lt bottle.

Pour remaining 1 litre in 3Lt bottle into 5Lt bottle.

Now again fill 3Lt bottle and pour 3 litres into 5Lt bottle.

Now you have 4 litres in the 5Lt bottle. That’s it.

Solution 2 :

First, fill the 5Lt bottle and pour 3 litres into 3Lt bottle.

Empty 3Lt bottle.

Pour remaining 2 litres in 5Lt bottle into 3Lt bottle.

Again fill the 5Lt bottle and pour 1 litre into 3 Lt bottle until it becomes full.

3 Friends went to a shop and purchased 3 toys. Each person paid Rs.10 which is the cost of one toy. So, they paid Rs.30 i.e. total amount. The shop owner gave a discount of Rs.5 on the total purchase of 3 toys for Rs.30. Then, among Rs.5, Each person has taken Rs.1 and remaining Rs.2 given to the beggar beside the shop. Now, the effective amount paid by each person is Rs.9 and the amount given to the beggar is Rs.2. So, the total effective amount paid is 9*3 = 27 and the amount given to beggar is Rs.2, thus the total is Rs.29. Where has the other Rs.1 gone from the original Rs.30?

The logic is payments should be equal to receipts. We cannot add the amount paid by persons and the amount given to the beggar and compare it to Rs.30.The total amount paid is ₹27. So, from ₹27, the shop owner received 25 rupees and beggar received ₹ 2. Thus, payments are equal to receipts.

How to get a number 100 by using four sevens (7’s) and a one (1)?

Answer 1: 177 – 77 = 100 ;

Answer 2: (7+7) * (7 + (1/7)) = 100

Move any four matches to get 3 equilateral triangles only (don’t remove matches)

Find the area of the red triangle.

To solve this fun maths question, you need to understand how the area of a parallelogram works. If you already know how the area of a parallelogram and the area of a triangle are related, then adding 79 and 10 and subsequently subtracting 72 and 8 to get 9 should make sense.

How many feet are in a mile?

Solve - 15+ (-5x) =0

What is 1.92÷3

A man is climbing up a mountain which is inclined. He has to travel 100 km to reach the top of the mountain. Every day He climbs up 2 km forward in the day time. Exhausted, he then takes rest there at night time. At night, while he is asleep, he slips down 1 km backwards because the mountain is inclined. Then how many days does it take him to reach the mountain top?

If 72 x 96 = 6927, 58 x 87 = 7885, then 79 x 86 = ?

Answer:

Look at this series: 36, 34, 30, 28, 24, … What number should come next?

Look at this series: 22, 21, 23, 22, 24, 23, … What number should come next?

If 13 x 12 = 651 & 41 x 23 = 448, then, 24 x 22 =?

Look at this series: 53, 53, 40, 40, 27, 27, … What number should come next?

The ultimate goals of mathematics instruction are students understanding the material presented, applying the skills, and recalling the concepts in the future. There's little benefit in students recalling a formula or procedure to prepare for an assessment tomorrow only to forget the core concept by next week.

Teachers must focus on making sure that the students understand the material and not just memorize the procedures. After you learn the answers to a fun maths question, you begin to ask yourself how you could have missed something so easy. The truth is, most trick questions are designed to trick your mind, which is why the answers to fun maths questions are logical and easy.
