Upper primary school mathematics question UPQ492

In the Esplanade Library, the ratio of the number of men to the number of women at was 2 : 3. After some time, 60 more men came and 30 women left. In the end, there were 20 more women than men. Find the number of women at the Esplanade Library in the end.

 Solution:

            There were 20 more women in the Esplanade Library than men at the end

            The model,

UPQ492-1

            There are 60 more men came in and 30 women left the Esplanade Library, by removing 60 men and adding 30 women to the above model will give the men to women ratio of 2 : 3

             The final model,

UPQ492-2

 

 

            From the model,

                        1P = 60 + 20 + 30 = 110

                        The number of women at the Esplanade Library in the end = 3 × 110 – 30 = 300

 

Alternative solution:

            The initital ratio:

            Men : Women = 2 : 3

            60 men came in and 30 women left

            At the end, Women was 20 more than Men

            Men ==> 2U + 60

            Women ==> 3U – 30

            The different = 20

            3U – 30 – 2U – 60 = 20

            1U = 110

            The number of women at the end = 3 × 110 – 30 = 300
