Overnight, by a motorway?
A cleanup operation is under way after a tanker carrying more than 20 tonnes of yeast extract – believed to be Marmite – overturned on a busy motorway.
Average serving of Marmite, 4 grammes, so 250,000 servings to the tonne. Average weight of slice of bread, around 30 grammes, so 7.5 tonnes toast per tonne Marmite or 150 tonnes of toast needed overall.
And for extra marks, how many soft boiled eggs will you need to dip the Marmite soldiers in?
Please show your workings.
Umm, is this close enough to hte new maths to make it into a GCSE paper?
