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?

 Solution:

            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      

Alternative solution:

            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
