Upper primary school mathematics question UPQ475

In the Esplanade library, 3/5 of the books are English books. 620 of the English books have been loaned out. 2/7 of the remaining English books are fiction books while the other 350 English books are non-fiction books. How many books are there in the Esplanade library?

Solution:

The flow model

Start from the remaining

5/7 fraction of the remaining is non-fiction books and is 350 books

Per the above remaining math model

5 units = 350

1 unit = 70

The number of books remaining = 7 × 70 = 490

The total number of English books = 490 + 620 = 1110

3/5 fraction of the total number of books is English books

Per the math model for total number of books

3 units = 1110

1 unit = 370

Total number of books in the Esplanade library = 5 × 370 = 1850
