David Copperfield

Here is my groups summary we have written together. It talks about Chapter 2 of David Copperfield written by Charles Dickens.

Chapter 2 is about Davy observing his childhood. He remembers the times his nurse/housekeeper, Peggotty use to take him to church. She also used to look after him when his Mum was out. One night his mother came home with a gentleman. The same one that escorted them home after church. His name was Mr. Murdstone. Davy did not like him.
2 months later Peggotty asked if Davy would like to spend a fortnight at her brothers, away from home. Davy was excited to leave but at the same time he was sad to leave his home and his mum.


I've learnt how to solve a ratio problem. I am capable of writing my own ratio problems.

Angelica is packing party bags for a party. Each bag has 2 apples and 6 oranges.

1) She needs to fill 12 bags. How many apples and oranges will she need?

2) If she has 36 apples. How many oranges does she need?

3) She has 24 fruits to pack. How many apples and oranges would she need?
