Upper primary school mathematics question UPQ420

Hairu had a stack of stickers. He gave 1/5 of the stickers to Sarin and 2/3 of the remaining stickers to Fatimah. If Hairu had 24 stickers left, how many stickers did he have at first?

Solution:

Starts with drawing a sticker distribution flow based on fraction of Hairu’s stickers go to.

To note that Fatimah’s stickers are from the remaining of Hairu’s stickers

The flow diagram: Work out the number of remaining stickers, 1 unit = 24

The number of remaining stickers = 3 × 24 = 72

The remining stickers are 4/5 fraction of the total number (Hairu) of stickers 4 units = 72

1 unit = 18

The number of stickers that Hairu has at first = 5 × 18 = 90
