Question

Answer

1 unit of Ali’s money = 5 units of Shawn’s money

Divide up Ali’s money so that size of 1 unit of Ali’s money = size of 1 unit of Shawn’s money (equal number of numerators)
1/8 = 5/40
Thus, Ali has 40 units while Shawn has 48 units

Ratio of Ali’s money : Shawn’s money
= 40:48
= 5:6

  1. 5 : 6

Set all the same common denominator.

So Ali’s money is 6/48.

Since Shawn’s is 5/48.

And 6 parts of Ali is equivalent to 5 parts of Shawn’s, so Shawn has more money.

Therefore the ratio is 5:6

Just got the solution from my colleague’s recommended tutor, Mr Leong. (Specialization : mathematics)

You can contact him at 91739846 for your child. Heard he’s almost full for December’s mathematics enrichment programme, but you can give it a shot.

Good luck!
