How Much wrapping?
Your task this Christmas is to help Jack choose, wrap and deliver 6 presents to his friends and family.
There are three tasks.
He has decided that each person has to have one of two presents that they will LOVE to open on Christmas Day.
You must decide which of the two presents to buy for each person, but you have a budget of only £140 to use in total.
Jack has only £140 in his piggy bank to spend, which includes wrapping paper!
The presents need to be wrapped up!
You need to calculate the number of rolls of wrapping paper that will be needed.
There is a choice of paper, each roll has a different price.
You do NOT have to use the same paper for each present.
There are 4 designs to choose from, and each costs a little bit more or less.
Remember you have a total of £140 for presents and paper, so choose the paper wisely!
