Re: Tutor MathsGuru: Ask me for your burning Maths questions

Q2)

Number of households : number of computers = 3:5
5 = 2 + 2 + 1 = ( 1 x 2) + ( 1 x 2) + ( 1 x 1)
For every 3 households, 2 households have 2 computers each and the remaining household has 1 computer.

Fraction of household that have 1 computer
= 1/3

Re: Q&A - PSLE - Math

When distance is fixed; speed and time are inversely proportional. Speed ratio => 80 : 60 = 4 : 3 Time ratio => 3: 4 4u – 3u = 1u = (3/4 – 1/3) = 5/12 hrs Total distance = 80 x 3 x 5/12 = 100km Time taken when speed is 90km/hr = 100/90 = 10/9 hrs I like this shorter approach! :imcool: Glad you like...
