1.3:
(5-14) Use problem solving strategies
1) Tim said that he lost 5 coins, none of which was a half dollar, totaling 75 cents. What coins might Tim
have lost?
He lost 2 quarters, 2 dimes, and a nickel
How many solutions does this problem have? One, more than one, or none.
One. Three quarters would be too many (only 3 coins), and 1 quarter too few (even adding 4
dimes would give only 65&cent;). Therefore, there had to have been 2 quarters, and the only way to
get the other 25&cent; in 3 coins is 2 dimes and 1 nickel.
2) What problem solving strategy would you use to solve the following:
a) Chris is 4 years older than her brother Jack. If the sum of their ages is 30, how old is each person?
If you add 4 years to Jack’s age, they would be the same age. If you add 4 to the total of their
ages, it would be twice Chris’s age: 34/2 = 17. Therefore, Chris is 17 and Jack is four years
younger, or 13. Check: Chris is 4 years older than Jack, and 17 + 13 = 30.
b) On the first day, Joe started a club and he was the first member. Each day after that, one more
member joined the club than on the previous day. How many people were in the club on the 40th day?
Write a table of values and find a pattern:
Day
# joined
Total in club
1
1
1
2
2
3
3
3
6
4
4
10
5
5
15
…
…
…
40
40
The number of club members on the nth day is the sum 1 + 2 + 3 + … + n = n(n + 1)2.
Based on this pattern, on day n = 40 there are 40(41)/2 = 820 members.
3) Solve the following problem: If 5 people are at a party, and each person shakes every other person’s
hand exactly once, then how many handshakes are there?
Consider the people to be A, B, C, D, and E. Draw a diagram representing the handshakes and
count the lines. Keep in mind that a person does not shake hands with himself, and each pair only
shakes hands once:
A
A
B
B
C
C
D
D
E
E
There were 10 handshakes in all.
