#### The size of our solar system is difficult to perceive. This is the preliminary activity to a scale model.

#### This problem-solving challenge is provoking much discussion:

#### The hardest part of the challenge is to know when every solution has been found.

#### Looking at it from an algebraic perspective makes this possible:

#### Algebra breaks the solution into two parts: working out the 'tens' and working out the 'units'.

#### A methodical approach is essential.

#### It enables both sets of partial solutions (tens and units) to be found.

#### These can then be combined to find groups of four digits that 'make 200':
