Upper primary school mathematics question UPQ384

Sarin’s family visited a candy shop in Kluang. They were amazed by the range of candies that they could buy from the shop. Fatimah was specially attracted by the big and colourful lollipops on sale in the shop and decided to buy some. The candy shop sold a pack of lollipops for \$3 and for every pack of 5 lollipops bought, you got p lollipops free. The lollipops were only sold in packets. How many lollipops can Fatimah get with \$20?

Solution:

There were 5 lollipops in one packet and sold at \$3 per packet

Fatimah spent \$20 on the lollipops

The number of packets of lollipops Fatimah could buy = 20 ÷ 3 = 6

She got p extra lollipops per packets she bought

The number of lollipops Fatimah could get = 5 × 6 + 6 × p = (6p + 30)
