Question

Hi, can anyone help with this P6 math please? Thank you.

Mary needs to make some bookmarks for fund-raising day. She made 1/6 of the bookmarks on the first day and 48 bookmarks on the second day. The number of bookmarks that she made on the second day was 1/5 more than the number she made on the first day. How many bookmarks does Mary needs to make for the fund-raising day?

Answer

    Day 1 :  Total                

        1     :     6

×5    |     :      | ×5

        5     :      30

     Day 1 –> 5u

     Day 2 –> 1/5 more than day 1

                –> 5u + 1u

                   = 6u

  6u = 48

  1u = 8

Total = 30u

           = 30 × 8

           = 240 (ans)
