Finally learning my P5 ratios I think it should be:
a) 35
b) 3:10

Hi,

Caleb has some \$2 notes and Dylan has some \$5 notes. The ratio of the number of notes Caleb had to the number of notes Dylan had was 5 : 7 . If Dylan gave Caleb 24 notes, the ratio of the number of notes Caleb has to the number of notes Dylan has would become 3 : 1.

1. How many \$2 notes did Caleb have at first?

2. Find the total value of Caleb and Dylan’s notes.

1. How many \$2 notes did Caleb have at first?

2. Find the total value of Caleb and Dylan’s notes.

At first:
Ratio of C : D : Total
=> 5 : 7 : 12After Dylan gave Caleb 24 notes:
Ratio of C : D : Total
=> 3 : 1 : 4 (x3)
=> 9 : 3 : 12

9 units - 5 units = 24 notes
4 units = 24 notes
1 unit = 6 notes

5 units x 6 notes = 30 notes
7 units x 6 notes = 42 notes

30 x \$2 = \$60
42 x \$5 = \$210
\$60 + \$210 = \$270

1) At first, C has 30 \$2 notes.
2) Total value of Caleb and Dylan’s notes is \$270

No. Of fifty cent coins = 62
-------------------------------

12 fifty cent coins -->\$6

\$21 - \$6 = \$15

50 cents - 20 cent =30cent=0.3
\$15 / 0.3 = 50

Total fifty cent coins--> 50 + 12 = 62
