Question

Muthu has a total of 1260 Singapore and Malaysian Stamps. He gave an equal number of Singapore and Malaysian stamps to his brother and found that he had ½ of Singapore stamps and 3/5 of Malaysian stamps left. What was the total number of stamps left ?

Answer

This is a Matrix question. 

LCM (give)

1/2 = 2/ 4

2/5 

   Give    Left     Total  
Singapore 2u 2u 4u  
Malaysia      2u 3u 5u  
Total   5u 9u  

 

9u = 1260

1u = 1260 ÷ 9 = 140

5u = 5 × 140 = 700
