Upper primary school mathematics question UPQ292

The average mass of Hairu and Fatimah is 49 kg. The average mass of Fatimah and Sarin is 79 kg. Hairu is 1/4 as heavy as Sarin. Find Hairu’s mass.

 Solution:

            Total mass of Hairu and Fatimah = 2 × 49 = 98kg

            Total mass of Fatimah and Sarin = 2 × 79 = 158kg

            Hairu’s mass is ¼ fraction of Sarin’s mass

            Draw the model

 

 

            Per the model

            3 units = 158 – 98 = 60

            1 unit = 20 kg

            The mass of Hairu = 20 kg
