Upper primary school mathematics question UPQ239

There were 120 pupils in the Esplanade library. 3/5 of them were girls. Some girls then left the library. The number of girls remaining was 4/7 of the remaining pupils. How many girls left the library?

 Solution:

Initially,

            3/5 of the 120 pupils were Girls

            From the model,

            5 units = 120

            1 unit = 24

            The number of Girls = 3 × 24 = 72

            The number of Boys = 2 × 24 = 48

Finally,

            The number of girls remaining was 4/7 of the remaining pupils

             Only some girls left and all the boys remain in the Esplanade library

             From the final model

             3 units = 48

             1 unit = 16

             The number of Girls remain in Esplanade library = 4 × 16 = 64

             The number of Girls left the Esplanade library = 72 – 64 = 8
