    Ive picked up a Maths cover lesson and (stupidly ?) brought the past questions home to make sure I knew what I was doing; any suggestions please?

    length X width X height = volume
    x X x X (x+4) = 150
    x2 X (x+4) = 150
    x3+ 4x2 = 150

    Sorry can't get the xs and the powers to look how they should, but hopefully you get the idea.

    Thanks caterpillartobutterfly, I was sort of getting there just wasn't sure what to look for (it's for a bottom set of naughty boys anyway so should be fun!)

    Oh SENDKath - am disappointed in you ! Glad you managed to get some help with your Maths problem but ' bottom set ' and ' naughty boys ' . Please consider 'lower attaining' and 'challenging' ? Have fun.

    Now minnie me, I'm very disappointed that you have assumed that a group of young men who have adopted an alternate set of behavioural norms should be labelled as "challenging", and that you have prejudged their prospects and assumed that they will be "lower attaining". For shame!

    Point taken. Can you offer alternatives to ' bottom set ' and ' naughty ' ?
