Q&A - P5 Math
Re: Q&A - P5 Math
Pse assist in solving the following questions.
1). The school attendants arranged all the chairs in the hall in rows of 12 and there was no remainder. When the chairs were rearranged in rows of 10, there were 7 more rows but 2 chairs left over. How many chairs were there in the hall?
2). A bus left the Woodlands Interchange with some passengers. At the first stop, 5/8 of the passengers got off while 14 passengers got on the bus. At the second stop, 29 passengers got off and 5 passengers got on the bus. When the bus left the second stop, the number of passengers in the bus was 1/4 of the number of passengers when it left the first stop. How many passengers were there in the bus when the bus left the Interchange?
Thanks.

12n = 10 (n+7) + 2
12n = 10n + 70 + 2
2n = 72
n = 36
Hence number of chairs in the hall were 36x12 = 432

Re: Q&A - P5 Math
Alternative solution to Q2:
3/4 of no. of passengers after 1st stop = 29-5=24
since no. of passengers after 2nd stop is 1/4 of no. after 1st stop
No. of passengers after 1st stop = 24/3 x 4=32
3/8 of no. of passengers when left interchange = 32-14=18
since 5/8 of passengers got off at 1st stop.
No. of passengers when left interchange = 18/3 x 8 =48
3/4 of no. of passengers after 1st stop = 29-5=24
since no. of passengers after 2nd stop is 1/4 of no. after 1st stop
No. of passengers after 1st stop = 24/3 x 4=32
3/8 of no. of passengers when left interchange = 32-14=18
since 5/8 of passengers got off at 1st stop.
No. of passengers when left interchange = 18/3 x 8 =48

Ans: 87
5/7 of morning cookies (in jar) = 70/2 x 5=175
1/3 of evening cookies = 204-175=29
No. of evening cookies = 29 x 3=87
