Here are Natalie’s weekly activities. Today is Monday. What activity will she do tomorrow?
In this problem, we’re given a table which shows us all the different things that Natalie does over the course of a week. The top row of the table shows all the different days of the week. The second row of the table shows us the different activities that Natalie did on those days of the week.
So we can see that every Monday, Natalie goes to the park. On Tuesday, she reads a book. She walks her dog on Wednesdays, plays football on Thursdays. And on Fridays, she has a music lesson. Then it’s the weekend. On Saturdays, she goes swimming. And on Sundays, she plays on the computer. Before the week begins all over again and she goes to the park on Monday, then Tuesday, and so on.
If we look carefully at the question, we can see that two words are in bold. One of them is this word here: What activity will she do “tomorrow”? Our answer to this question depends on what day it is today. If you’re watching a video on a Thursday, then tomorrow will be a Friday. If you’re watching a video on a Tuesday, tomorrow will be a Wednesday. The answer will be different depending on which day it is today.
Let’s read the first part of the question again. We’re told what day today is. Today is Monday. And so, we can use this information to help us to solve the problem. Let’s start by finding Monday on Natalie’s timetable.
