# Maths WORDED Problems question Watch

1. Do you answer the worded problems in order as the question is laid out or sometimes is it mixed up?
2. If I understand what you mean, the worded questions usually give information in a random order and you use your understanding of how to solve the question to use the information in the correct order, if that makes sense? However, I don't know what exam board your sitting your exams with, but worded maths questions often don't make the order of information important, but I think it depends on the specific paper that you're sitting.

Pick out the numbers and play with them, depending on what the question is asking you to do - it doesn't matter about the order. Although, with problem solving questions involving algebra, your working out might have to be a little more ordered in accordance with the question.
