Oh my gosh! Mr.Pug finally gave me a math problem about something I actually know about. I am so excited to solve this problem. This problem is that Jordan wants to start a pin g pong tournament but he wants as much people to play at the same time. So he has to find out how much ping pong tables can fit on the basketball court. I need to help him to find it out.
I had to measure the area of the ping pong table and the basketball court. There was a big difference in the 2 matter but it was fun to figure out the answer. I had to measure the length and the width of both matters.
I discovered that not only the ping pong tables need space, but the people need space to play. I didn't really get the part when we were supposed to add the space wider for the ping ping table but I did manage to get it done.
It was really surprising when I finish all my calculations and when I saw the result. I will show you the basic calculation underneath. Also even my estimate was exact! I estimated 16 and it is!
1.5m=Width of ping pong table, 3.5m=Length of ping pong table
14m=Width of basketball court, 26m=Length of basketball court
3.5m=The result of space for width added for ping pong table, 6.5m=The result of space for length added for ping pong table
3.5x4=14, 6.5x4=26, So it means 16 ping pong tables can fit on the basketball court.
