Upper primary school mathematics question UPQ315

The ratio of the area of A to B is 1: 2. If 30% of B overlaps with A, what percentage of the whole figure is not overlapped?

Solution:

The ratio of the area of A to B = 1 : 2

30% of B will overlap with 2 × 30% = 60% of A

The model The total units of the figure = 24

The units of the figure not overlep = 24 – 6 = 18

The percentage of the whole figure is not overlapped = 18/24 × 100% = 75%

Alternative Solution:

The ratio of the area of A to B = 1 : 2

30% of B will overlap with 2 × 30% = 60% of A

The percentage of B not overlapped = 70%

The percentage of A not overlapped = 40%

Whole figure not overlapped = (70 + 40 × 2) ÷ 2 = 75%
