We looked at these 2 Lego minis.
How many times larger is the big model than the smaller one?
How long is the small model?
How long is the big model?
What is the difference between the lengths of the two models?
How many small Lego minis equal the same length as one large Lego mini?
Here are some of our estimates of the lengths of the 2 cars:
red writing is the actual length of each car.
We calculated that the smaller car is approximately 1/3 the scale of the larger car.
Next we wondered how this would compare to a real mini. So Miss Whittaker let us use hers!
We found out that Miss Whittaker's mini is 3.6m (360cm) long.
That's about 51 times longer than the small Lego mini!
We are waiting to see if we are right!
