Upper primary school mathematics question UPQ249
Fatimah had $80 more than her brother Sarin In each of their coin banks. After Fatimah deposited 25% of her money and her brother Sarin deposited 75% of his money to the bank, they still have $420 left with altogether.
(a) How much did Fatimah have left in the end ?
(b) Express the amount of money her brother Sarin had left as a fraction of the amount of money Fatimah had in the end.
Fatimah deposited 25% of her money
In fraction, she deposited ¼ of her money and left with ¾ in the coin bank
Sarin deposited 75% of his money
In fraction, he deposited ¾ of his money and left with ¼ in the coin bank
Draw the model with $80 different
From the model
4U + 80 ÷ 4 = 420
4U = 400
1U = 100
Money that Fatimah left with in the end = 3 × 100 = $300
Money that her brother left with in the end = $120
Fraction of brother’s money to Fatimah’s money = 120/300 = 2/5
