Hi Y6!

As we have been looking at factors in Maths, we thought you may be able to solve this maths problem involving factors. Have a go!

What number am I? I have a factor of 3, so I am not a prime number. The sum of my digits equals 6. Two of the digits are the same.

Hello Mrs Cooper

Here’s my answer

I have a factor of 3, so I am not a prime number. – The number could be any number in the 3 times tables.

The sum of my digits equals 6. – Adding together the digits in my number is equal to 6, but the numbers have to have a factor of three too.

Two of the digits are the same. – Two of the digits in my number have to be the same.

By looking at 3 numbers that can add up to 6 but only two of them are the same and then checking that they have a factor of three i think the number is 330.

3+3+0= 6

330 has a factor of 3

2 of the digits are the same
