4/ 7, indicates that, after buying a table, remainder is 7U and 4U of it is used to buy 8 chairs.

Total remaining = 3U. –> (1)

7U  = 4U (8 chairs) + 3U

 

Next statement informs that 1/4 of the money was left. So we know total money Zamri had was 4 times more than the remainder. From the first statement (1) remaining is 3U, so total money Zamri had = 12U. 

12U = Total money, 4U used for 8 chairs, 3U remaining and 5U = table.

(a) fraction of money spent on table = 5/12

(b) 5U = 210$. 1U = 42$

8 chairs = 4U 

                = 4 x 42 = 168$

Cost of one chair = 168/8 = 21$
