Grandpa Helpful

The Review Task for Year 9 this week gave them a packing problem. The scenario was that their grandfather was moving into a retirement village and needed to work out the cheapest way to move his furniture, in a single trip.

They were given the dimensions of the furniture in inches and the dimensions of the transport vehicles in centimetres. They were told to spend a maximum of 30 minutes on their solution.
