Hairu bought 220 stickers. 40% of them were blue stickers and the rest were green stickers. He gave Sarin some blue stickers and the percentage of blue stickers became 20%.

a) How many stickers did Hairu have left?

b) How many blue stickers did he give to Sarin?



            Hairu bought 220 stickers

            100% ==> 220

            10% ==> 22

            40% ==> 22 × 4 = 88 ==> the number of blue stickers

            60% ==> 22 × 6 = 132 ==> the number of green stickers

            Some blue stickers given to Sarin and became only 20% left

            80% ==> 132 ==> the number of green stickers

            10% ==> 16.5

            100% ==>165 ==> the total number of stickers left

            20% ==> 16.5 × 2 = 33

            The number of blue stickers given to Sarin = 88 – 33 = 55
