The Battleship Game (for long road trips)


The following template can be used to play “Battleships” which is a variation on the board game that has been around for ages.

The beauty of this version is that it uses car number plates to initiate each <attack>. You can modify the game to suit your own situation. let us know how it goes and how much time it takes on your next long road trip. Other travel game options include; work through the letters of the alphabet using road signs and car number plates and truck lettering, etc. Try this in reverse! Another one is to factorise car numbers – see who is the fastest. Happy travels! Click on the following link to download the “Battleships” template:

NCEA Level 2 Algebra Problem. Using the information given, the shaded area = 9, that is:
y(y-8) = 9 –> y.y – 8y – 9 =0
–> (y-9)(y+1) = 0, therefore y = 9 (can’t have a distance of – 1 for the other solution for y)
Using the top and bottom of the rectangle,
x = (y-8)(y+2) = (9-8)(9+2) = 11
but, the left side = (x-4) = 11-4 = 7, but rhs = y+? = 9+?, which is greater than the value of the opp. side??
[I think that the left had side was a mistake and should have read (x+4)?]
