Maths 5: knowing and using number facts

The Queen’s marching parade

The Grand Old Duke of York is to parade his soldiers before the Queen. He has 100 soldiers, but wants his army to look larger. Ten soldiers in each row would look big when advancing, but the rows would march past too quickly. Two soldiers in each row would take longer to march past the Queen, but would look small from the front.
