Need 2 kg - 5/8 kg + 1/5 kg

= 80/40 kg - 25/40 kg + 8/40 kg

= 63/40 kg

= 1 23/40 kg more strawberries.

This one only P4 maths lah.

Hi All,

Would appreciate your help to solve the below question:

There were 3 times as many boys as girls in the school hall at first.

After 12 boys left and 8 girls entered the hall, there were 4 more boys than girls remaining in the hall.

What was the number of boys in the hall at first?

TIA

(a) How many more beads did Maia have than Jenny in the end?

(b) How many beads did Maia have at first?

What are the answers?

4u = 1920

u = 480

a) 2064 - 144 = 1920

b) 480 + 2064 = 2544

is it correct?

### Re: Q&A - P4 Math

may I ask :

do P4 primary school Maths Teachers teach this "1u" method in school, or expecting parents to send kids to tuition, to learn "1u" method ?

is "1u" method supposed to be covered, under P4 MOE Maths syllabus ?

"1u" is not part of Model method, right ?

1U --> 1 unit

When we draw models, we draw them in units, isn't it?
