    Hi! Seems to me the file doesn't match the description. Do you have one with 2s, 3s, 5s, and 10s please?

      Hi Tom Thank you for your query. Yes, at first glance this resource looks like it is dealing with a whole range of numbers! However, if you look more closely, you will see that any other numbers (such as 8, 9, 6, 12 and 11) are blacked out on the grid. This leaves only 2, 3, 5, and 10 available for the students to work with. I hope this makes sense. Please contact us again if you have any further troubles.
