Upper primary school mathematics question UPQ410

Sarin and Hairu had a total of 1044 stickers. Sarin had 8 times as many stickers as Hairu. How many stickers should Sarin give Hairu so that Hairu will have 2 times as many stickers as Sarin?

 Solution:

                        The model

UPQ410-1

                        Total number of units = 1 + 8 = 9 units

                        The total number of stickers = 1044

                        9 units = 1044

                        1 unit = 116

                        The number of stickers from Sarin to Hairu = 5 × 116 = 580

Alternative solution:

                        Solve using ratio

                        The initial ratio

                        Sarin : Hairu : Sarin + Hairu = 8 : 1 : 9

                        The total number of stickers no change

                        Final ratio after transfer

                        Sarin : Hairu : Sarin + Hairu = 1 : 2 : 3 = 3 : 6 : 9

                        9 units = 1044

                        1 unit = 116

                        The number of units transfer from Sarin to Hairu = 8 – 3 = 5

                        The number of stickers transfer from Sarin to Hairu = 5 × 116 = 580
