Please help again!! Thanks alot.

Mdm Rani bought a shawl, a bedsheet, a pillow case and a towel. The average mass of these items was 12.5 g. The total mass of the pillow case and the towel was 2/3 of the total mass of the shawl and the bedsheet. If the shawl weighs 9.8 g and the towel weighs 6.5 g, find the difference in mass between the bedsheet and the pillow case.

If the shawl weighs 9.8 g and the towel weighs 6.5 g, find the difference in mass between the bedsheet and the pillow case.

1u ---> 50/5 = 10

Pillow case + Towel : 2u ---> 10 x 2 = 20 g

Shawl + Bedsheet : 3u ---> 10 x 3 = 30 g

Bedsheet --> 30 - 9.8 = 20.2 g

Pillow case ---> 20 - 6.5 = 13.5 g

20.2 - 13.5 = 6.7 g

The difference in mass between the bedsheet and the pillow case was 6.7 g.

70% remainder ---> 105 + 35 = $140

100% remainder ---> 140/70 x 100 = $200

75% ---> 200 + 70 = $270

100% ---> 270/75 x 100 = $360

He had $360 at first.

2) Lukas & Jason share some stickers.The ratio of Lukas stickers to Jason stickers was 3:5.After Lukas gave away 20 stickers,Lukas has half as many stickers as Jason. How many more stickers should Lukas give away in order to have 20% of Jason's stickers?

L : J (at first）--- 6u : 10u

L : J (in the end) --- 6u - 20 : 10u

6u - 20 ---> 10u/2 = 5u

1u ---> 20

10u ---> 20 x 10 = 200

20% x 200 = 40

6u - 20 ---> 20 x 6 - 20 = 100

100 - 40 = 60

Lukas should give away 60 more stickers in order to have 20% of Jason's stickers.

3) In a hall chairs are arranged in rows such that there were exactly 15 chairs in each row. For a performance 7 more chairs were added into the hall and all the chairs were rearranged. There are now 11 chairs in each row and 9 more rows than before.How many chairs are there in the hall for the performance?

11 x 9 = 99

99 - 7 = 92

15 - 11 = 4

92/4 = 23

23 + 9 = 32

32 x 11 = 352 chairs

There are 352 chairs in the hall for the performance.

Thanks in advance.

the ratio 6:10 at first

Given 3:5, I have doubled it, so that I do not need to work with fractions or decimals

& why u did 10 divide by 2

Lukas has half as many stickers as Jason
