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
