### Re: Q&A - P4 Math

One possible approach: Using units and parts:

A: M = 3u : 1u = 9u: 3u

A: M = 1p : 2p = 4p: 8p

Total remains the same:

Therefore 12u = 12p, that is u = p

Therefore (before) A:M = 9u:3u

(after) A: M = 4u:8u

Therefore 5u = 165

u= 33

Total = 12u = 396 stickers

A: M = 3u : 1u = 9u: 3u

A: M = 1p : 2p = 4p: 8p

Total remains the same:

Therefore 12u = 12p, that is u = p

Therefore (before) A:M = 9u:3u

(after) A: M = 4u:8u

Therefore 5u = 165

u= 33

Total = 12u = 396 stickers

Hi

Need help:

1) Farmer Lim sold 1/2 as many eggs on Saturday than on Friday. He sold 78 less eggs on Sunday than on Friday. If he sold a total of 172 eggs on the three days, how many eggs did he sell on Sunday?

2) Tin A contains some 20-cents coins and Tin B contains some 50-cents coins. There are 9 more coins in Tin A than in Tin B. The amount of money in Tin A is $2.70 less than that in Tin B.

How many 50-cents coins are there in Tin B?

TIA

Q1) You may use MD.

Fri ------ 2 units

Sat ----- 1 unit

Sun ------ 2 units – 78

2 units + 1unit + (2units – 78) ------172

5 units ------ 250

1 unit ------50

Number of eggs sold on Sun ----- (2*50) – 78 ------22.

Q2) Suppose or pretend that you remove 9 20 cents coins from Tin A.

9*20 ---- 180

Now Tin A has (270+180) or 450 cents less than Tin B

Difference in value between a 50 cents coin and 20 cents coin ------ 30 cents.

450/30 ------ 15

There are 15 50 cents coins in Tin B.

Thanks for your help.

May paid $3.40, Sally paid $3.60

Total paid by May & Sally = $7.00 = 7 apples + 7 oranges

So, 1 apple + 1 orange = $1

Sally paid $3.60 for 4 apples + 3 oranges, so 1 apple = $3.60 - $3.00 = $0.60, 2 apples = $ 1.20

Q2. length = 3 x breadth... with this, I think you can solve it

cheers.
