I am thinking of a 4-digit even number. The digit in the ones place is 6 more than the digit in the thousands place. The digit in the tens place is 3 times the value of the digit in the thousands place. What is the smallest possible number?
This is one of the earliest concepts taught at the beginning of the year for Primary 2 and Primary 3 students. The objective of these Forming Number questions is to test a student's understanding and application of “Place Values”. Some of these questions are direct and simple, while some are a little tricky and difficult to explain. Here at PSLEMath, our teachers have created a video to systematically explain to students the approach to solving Forming Numbers questions. Watch the video below for the question and solution!
