Hi,

I would like to check whether the working that my girl did is correct. Her answer is correct. Am I right to say if answer is correct not necessary that the working is correct.

Can anyone advise how to learn fraction , whole number & model question? I find many question that I could not do and help my girl.

Q : Ali had some apples and oranges in his stall at first. On Friday, Ali sold 1/4 of the apples and bought 15 more oranges than the number of apples that he sold. On Saturday, he bought 60 apples and sold 2/5 of the oranges. In the end, he had the same number of apples and oranges. If he had 228 oranges in the end, how many oranges did Ali have at first?

228 – 60 = 168

168 ÷ 3 = 56

228 ÷ 3 = 76

76 x 5 = 380

56 + 15 = 71

380 – 71 = 309

Ans : 309
