Thank you Ender! You're such a nice person,always helping us out so quickly. So much of your painstaking efforts.. Appreciated deeply!Ender wrote:Distance =224 kmbelnanna wrote:Please help to explain this question.. Thanks in advance.

Time taken to complete the distance at slower pace= 56min

convert to hours = 56/60 = 14/15 hour

Slow speed = 224/(14/15) = 240 km/h

Usual speed= 240+40 = 280 km/h

Usual time wll be 224/280 = 0.8 hour or 0.8 X 60= 48 mins

300(t - 6) = 200(t + 3)

300t - 1800 = 200t + 600

100t = 2400

t = 24

d = 300(24 - 6) = 300 x 18 = 5400 or

200(24 + 3) = 200 x 27 = 5400

5400m = 5.4km

Ans : 5.4km or 5400m.

It is my pleasure.

Forks ------- 1u x $4.10 = $4.1u

Spoons -------- (1u + 1u + 6) x $6.05 = $(12.1u + 36.3)

Knives ------- (1u - 6) x $3.60 = $(3.6u - 21.6)

(3.6u - 21.6) + (12.1u + 36.3) + 4.1u ------- 410.7

19.8u ------- 396

1u ------- 396/19.8 = 20

1u + 1u + 6 = 2 x 20 + 6 = 46

Ans : 46 spoons.

Thanks

Thanks

26u + 50 =22(u+9)

26u= 22u + 148

u =37

In the end there are 37+9= 46 rows.

Brown , grey, grey, arrangement comes as a set of 3 rows, i.e each brown row appears once every 3rows.

Therefore number of brown rows =46÷3 =15, remainder 1 row.

Depending how you arrange them, bgg or gbg or ggb, you'll have either 15 rows or 16 rows of brown. Question asking for maximum number of browns, therefore it's 16 rows of brown that you want, the bgg format.

Max. number of brown chairs in the end is 16×22= 352 chairs.

Thanks for the note . Thus the reminder is inclusive .

### Re: Q&A - PSLE Math

Let" u" be the number of parts for the banner,

and "p" be the number of parts for the flags.

Expressed the length of the strings

0.8u =1.2p

p=8/12*u=2/3*u

Banners=2u,

Flags = 5p,

5p-2u = 44

10/3*u-2u=44

10/3*u-6/3*u =44

4/3*u = 44

u = 33

Banner =2u=2X33=66

and "p" be the number of parts for the flags.

Expressed the length of the strings

0.8u =1.2p

p=8/12*u=2/3*u

Banners=2u,

Flags = 5p,

5p-2u = 44

10/3*u-2u=44

10/3*u-6/3*u =44

4/3*u = 44

u = 33

### Re: Q&A - PSLE Math

Alternatively,ozora wrote:Need guide on these last two questions.

80cm ------- 2 banners

1.2m = 120cm ------- 5 flags

LCM of 80 and 120 is 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 3 x 5 = 240

240cm ------- 2 x 3 = 6 banners

240cm ------- 5 x 2 = 10 flags

10 - 6 = 4

44/4 = 11

11 x 6 = 66

Ans : 66 banners.

Thanks in advance for the help.

Sally bought some chocolates and gave half of them to Mabel. Sally also bought some lollipops and gave half of them to Mabel. Mabel ate 7 lollipops and Sally ate 16 chocolates.

After that, the number of lollipops and chocolates Mabel had were in the ratio 1:8 and the number of lollipops and chocolates Sally had were in the ratio 1:5. How many lollipops did Sally buy at first?

Answer says 48 but I could not understand how to arrive at it.
