Lower primary school mathematics question LPQ32

Sarin and Hairu counting the money they have in their coin banks. If Sarin has $80 more than Hairu. How much money must Sarin give to Hairu so that he will have $14 more than Hairu?

Solution:

Since the money that Sarin and Hairu is different of $80, we can draw a model base on the amount,

            Model:

 

                      From the above model,

                        2 units = 80 – 14 = 66

                        1 unit = $33

                        Sarin needs to give Harin 33 + 14 = $47

            A simple check,

                        Sarin left with 80 – 47 = $33

                        Hairu has 47 – 33 = $14 more than Sarin
