2 examples of P6 Maths problem sums :

1. David had 2 bags of marbles. After he had sold 44 marbles from Bag X to his friend, the number of marbles in Bag Y was 5/7 of the number of marbles in Bag X. Given that there were 2/5 as many marbles in Bag Y as in Bag X originally, find the number of marbles in Bag X at first.

2. John read a book in 3 days. He read 35% of the total number of pages in the book on the 2nd day. The ratio of the total number of pages of book he read on the 1st and 2nd day to the number of pages he read on the 3rd day was 11:9. If he had read 75 more pages on the 3rd day than on the 1st day, how many pages of the book did he read on the 2nd day ?

Not only must the child be good at Maths, he/she must also be good at English, in terms of interpreting and understanding the question.
