Vehicle weights
This task is about solving mathematical problems involving weight.
A car-transporter is allowed to carry no more than 8 vehicles, up to a maximum total weight of 8 tonnes.
A small car weighs 800 kg and a station-wagon weighs 1200 kg. (1 tonne = 1000 kg)
Question
a) Which
three
of these loads would
not
be allowed?
Select three options.
4 station-wagons and 3 small cars
7 station-wagons
9 small cars
3 station-wagons and 5 small cars
5 station-wagons and 3 small cars
Question
2
Change answer
Here is an equation to describe the load of the transporter:
(800 ×
m
) + (1200 ×
n
) =
p
