Upper primary school mathematics question UPQ326

In the figure below, from by a hexagon overlapped with a circle, the hexagon is 11/12 filled with blue while 2/7 of the smaller circle is filled with green. The green portion is overlapped by the two shapes. What is the ratio of the overlapped portion of the figure to the unoverlaped part of the figure? Solution:

The hexagon is 1 – 11/12 = 1/12 overlapped with the circle

The circle is 2/7 overlapped

1/12 of the fraction of hexagon is equal to 2/7 of the circle

Draw the math model Overlapped = 2 units (Green)

Unoverlapped = 5 + 22 = 27 units (Yellow + Blue)

The ratio of the overlapped portion of the figure to the unoverlapped part of the figure  = 2 : 27
