Word Problem Wednesday - Hi there. Did you know that some people are very worried about the future of the British High Street. Today's problem looks a bit closer at this modern day phenomena.
If Mary Portas was "really quite worried" (that's a 7 on scale of 1 - 11) about the future of Crouch End's town centre when it only had a few American franchises , like Starbucks and Costa and Subway, how worried will she be when she finds out about Cuts for Kids and Mathnasium and MyGym Enterprises. See if you can come up with the solution today and come back tomorrow to compare your answer with ours!
And as a bonus question, how likely would you be , on a scale of 0 to -9 , to buy a franchise from a company that promises a new puzzle every Wednesday but hasn't provided one since March 8th 2017?
Note that Costa is not American. It's owned by Whitbread plc.
I'll let Mary know!!
