This week’s question:

A school has 90 children. During the day, each child attends 4 classes. Each class has 15 children and 1 teacher. During the day, each teacher teaches 3 classes. What is the smallest number of teachers the school can have?

All correct entries go into a weekly draw for a $5 Canteen voucher. Hand in your solution to your Mathematics teacher.
