How Many Children Fit into a Square Metre?
Mr McMillan set a challenge for Room 23. He asked how many people can they fit standing inside a square metre.
Room 23 thought the answer might be 3. Mr McMillan said "Are you serious?" Room 23 said "Yes, definitely 3."
After some gentle manoeuvring, they discovered the could fit 22 people inside a square metre, (the small ones are squashed at the back which is why you can't see 22 people).
Mrs Dunbar and Mr McMillan were both in as well. Mrs Dunbar counted as 2 people because she is quite big for a Room 23 pupil and Mr McMillan, (who is taking the photo), counted as 3.
I wonder how many can fit in a cubic metre?
