Upper primary school mathematics question UPQ416
Sarin and Hairu decided to buy a gift for their family to celebrate Hari Raya Puasa. They agreed to share the cost of the gift. Hairu paid only $15 and Sarin paid $12 more than 2/5 of the cost of the gift. How much did the gift cost?
Start the model with five equal parts and Sarin paid $12 more than 2/5 fraction of the cost and $15 paid by Hairu
From the model
3 units = 12 + 15 = 27
1 unit = $9
The cost of the gift = 5 × 9 = $45
