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?
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
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
