# Write a word problem that can be solved by finding the numbers that have 4 as a factor

2) 24 is neither to 36

3) 24 is a factor of 48

4) what are the multiples of 4

'There are 7 rocks in 4 boxes, How many rocks are there in total.'

Step-by-step explanation:

We are given to form a word problem having solution which has 4 as a factor.

Now, if we take the following statement,

'There are 7 rocks in 4 boxes, How many rocks are there in total.'

Its solution is given by,

As there are 4 boxes in total and each box has 7 rocks.

Thus, total number of rocks will be 4 × 7 = 28.

We can see that 4 is a factor of 28.

Hence, the word problem could be 'There are 7 rocks in 4 boxes, How many rocks are there in total.'

Step-by-step explanation:

Option 1. 6

Since 6*4=24

So, 24 is the multiple of 6

Option 2. 36

Since 24 multiplied by any whole no. does not gives 36 and also 24 divided by any no. does not give 36

So, 24 is neither factor nor multiple of 36

Option 3. 48

Since 24*2=48

So, 24 is the factor of 48

Now second part of question :

Since we are told to write a word problem that can be solved by finding the numbers that have 4 as a factor.

So, If 100 people are lined up in a queue to a pass book entry

List the numbers that occur every 4 people.

In this case the answer is 4,8,12,16,20,24,28 and a further every 4 up to 100.

8:11, 8:24, 8:34, 8:43, 8:21 or 9:14

Hope it Helps :)
