Hi Sruthi.

Let’s try another (slightly different) solution:

APD → BPC → 24 cm sq
(Because DP = PC)

APD + BPC → 48 cm sq

ABP + DPC → APD + BPC → 48 cm sq
(A Mathematical Law)

ABP + DPC → 48 cm sq

ABP → 48 – 16 = 32 cm sq

APD → BPC → 24 cm sq

APD → 24 cm sq

APQ : QPD → 1 : 3 → 6 : 18
(AQ is 1/3 of QD)

APQ → 6 cm sq

ABPQ → ABP + APQ → 32 + 6 = 38 cm sq

Hope this helps

Cheers

Hi, need help to solve this question:

Mrs Yeo had 60% more books than Mrs Lim. Miss Tang had 25% fewer books than Mrs Yeo. Mrs Yeo and Mrs Lim gave Miss Tang a number of books in the ration 3 : 1. As a result, Miss Tange had 1.5 times as many books as before. Given that Mrs Yeo had 240 books more than Mrs Lim in the end, how many books did Mrs Yeo give to Miss Tang?

### Re: Q&A - P5 Math

Can someone help me with this ratio problem. Thanks!

Hanson had some one-dollar coins and some fifty-cent coins. The ratio of the number of one-dollar coins to the number of fifty-cent coins he had was 2 : 5. Hanson took 140 fifty-cent coins to the bank and changed these fifty-cent coins for the same value of one-dollar coins. In the end, the number of one-dollar coins to the number of fifty-cent coins he had became 5 : 2. Find the value of the fifty-cent coins Hanson had at first.

Mrs Yeo : Mrs Lim : Ms Tang
16u : 10u : 12u
-3p -1p +4p
---------- ----------- ------------
16u-3p : 10u-1p : 18u

16u - 3p - (10u - 1p) -> 240
6u - 2p -> 240
3u -1p -> 120

12u + 4p = 18u
6u = 4p
3u = 2p

2p - 1p -> 120
1p -> 120
3p -> 360

Ans : 360 books.
