Sarin and his family attended a concert performed by Star Dance group in the concert hall of The Esplanade. There were 243 women and 4 times as many men at the concert hall. There were 392 more children than adults. How many people were there at the concert hall altogether?

Solution:

Start the model base on there were 4 times as many men than women

From the model,

1 unit = 243

Total = 10 × 243 + 392 = __2822__

The number of people in the concert hall was __2822__

__Alternative solution:__

The number of women in the concert hall = 243

The number of men in the concert hall = 4 × 243 = 972

The number of children in the concert hall = 243 + 972 + 392 = 1607

The total number of people in the concert hall = 1607 + 243 + 972 = __2822__
