Upper primary school mathematics question UPQ446

Sarin, Hairu and Fatimah had spent an amount of money during the Great Singapore Sale. Sarin and Hairu spent $46 altogether. Sarin and Fatimah spent $54 altogether. Fatimah and Hairu spent $68 altogether. What was the ratio of Hairu’s spending to the total sum of money they spend?


            Work out the model base on their combination of spending

UPQ446-1                        Hairu’s money = 60 ÷ 2 = $30

                        Sarin’s money = 46 – 30 = $16

                        Fatimah’s money = 68 – 30 = $38

                        Total spending = 30 + 16 + 38 = $84

                        The Ratio, Hairu’s spending to total spending = 30 : 84 = 5 : 14
