We were given a problem by Mr Brookes. We needed to divide fifteen cubes into four bags, but still be able to represent the numbers 1 to 15 using just the bags. Following the investigation we decided we needed to put 1 cube in one bag, 2 cubes in another, 4 cubes in the next bag and 8 cubes in the last bag. This meant that by using certain combinations we could represent the numbers 1 to 15.
