Upper primary school mathematics question UPQ194
5/7 of Hairu’s stickers is the same as 1/6 of Sarin’s stickers. Fatimah has half as much stickers as Sarin. What is the ratio of Sarin’s stickers to Hairu’s stickers to Fatimah’s stickers?
We can work out the ratio by drawing the model based on the stickers each of them have
5/7 fraction of Hairu’s stickers is 1/6 of Sarin’s stickers.
Total Stickers for Sarin is 6 × 5 = 30 units
Since Fatimah has half as much stickers as Sarin
The number of stickers in units for Fatimah = 30 ÷ 2 = 15 units
The model as below shown.
The ratio of Sarin’s stickers to Hairu’s stickers to Lionel’s stickers = 30 : 7 : 15
5/7 fraction of stickers of Hairu ==> 1/6 = 5/30 fraction of stickers of Sarin
The ratio of Hairu’s stickers to Sarin’s stickers = 7 : 30
Fatimah has half as much sticker as Sarin
The ratio of Fatimah’s sticker to Sarin’s stickers = 1 : 2 = 15 : 30
The ratio of Sarin’s stickers to Hairu’s stickers to Fatimah’s stickers = 30 : 7 : 15
