The blog postings are about the Singapore Math. The readers can learn from the postings about Solving Singapore Primary School Mathematics. The blog presenting the Math Concept, Math Questions with solutions that teaches in Singapore Primary Schools. You or the kids can acquire the skill of dealing with Math Modeling, Math Problem Solving from Lower Primary School to Upper Primary School level after reading the postings. This posting is an upper primary school math question on Fraction and Area.

*Challenge yourself with the question before look out for the given solution‼!*

**Upper primary school mathematics question UPQ254**

The figure below is not drawn to scale. It is made up of 2 identical squares, DEFG and PQRS, overlapping each other. The area of each square is 100cm^{2}. Point G is the centre of square PQRS.

a) Find the area of overlapping portion.

b) What fraction of the figure is overlapped? Give your answer in the simplest form.

Solution:

Add 2 dotted lines thru centre point G of square PQRS and rotate square DEFG as shown

The area of overlapping is a quarter of the square = 100 ÷ 4 = 25cm^{2}

The fraction of the figure is overlapped = 1/7
