Hello fohope,

Here is my working as below:-

A + B + C = 215 ---- Equation 1

2A = B - 15 ---- Equation 2

2A = C + 25 ---- Equation 3

++++

From Equation 2 and 3:-

B - 15 = C +25

B = C + 40 ---- Equation 4

Subsitute Equation 4 into Equation 1:-

A + B + C = 215

A + (C+40) + C = 215

A + 2C + 40 = 215

A + 2C = 175 ---- Equation 5

Subsitute Equation 3 into Equation 5:-

2A = C + 25 ---- Equation 3

2A - 25 = C

A + 2C = 175 ---- Equation 5

A + 2(2A-25) = 175

A + 4A - 50 = 175

5A = 225

A = 225/5

A = 45

Therefore, the value of A is 45.

Trust the above clarifies.

B ---> 2u + 15

C -----> 2u - 25

A+B+C : 1u + 2u + 15 + 2u - 25 ----> 215

5u ---> 215 - 15 + 25 = 225

1u ---> 225/5 = 45

The value of A is 45.

### P5 Maths CA2

Appreciate some kind soul could tell me what is the exam format for P5 Maths CA2? Is it same as paper 1 since it is 50 minutes paper but calculator is allowed? Thanks in advance!

### Re: P5 Maths CA2

Wouldn't the teacher have told the students? There's always paper 1 (MCQ) and paper 2. And I think only section B of paper 2 allows calculator.

### Re: P5 Maths CA2

Thanks for the reply! I asked my kid and she said her teacher did not mention anything about the test format. Opps I forgot to mention that my kid is studying at Tao Nan.

### Re: P5 Maths CA2

Just asked DS. Paper 1 comprises MCQ and short problem sums. No calculate. Paper 2 has short and long problem sums. Calculator allowed. I assume this is the PSLE format.
