Upper primary school mathematics question UPQ431
Fatimah had some money to spend in a Kluang’s shophouse that selling stationary. After spending $31 on 5 notebooks and 8 files, she was short of $0.40 if she were to buy another notebook. However, she would have $0.60 left if she were to buy one more file.
(a) How much did a notebook cost?
(b) How much money did Fatimah have?
Base on the left over money
The total cost model
From the model
5U + 2 + 8U – 4.8 = 31
13U = 33.8
1U = $2.6
The cost of 1 notebook = 2.6 + 0.4 = $3
The amount of money Mandy has = 31 + 2.6 = $33.60
