Eric’s Home Learning Day 34

Eric has been baking cakes and wants to decorate them. Each cake can have a yellow smartie, a blue smartie or a green smartie. Using three smarties on each cake, how many different combinations of smarties could he have to decorate the cakes? E.g. one cake could have all blue smarties, one could have a blue, a green and a yellow, another could have two yellows and a blue. How could you record your answers and prove that you have found all the different combinations? I have put a recording sheet into Microsoft Teams: ‘Smartie cake challenge’ which you can use if you want. Email your photos to Mrs Aston or comment on the blog to let us know how you got on.
