Upper primary school mathematics question UPQ578

Sarin, Hairu and Fatimah are member of Bedok Swimming Club. The swimming club has 5510 members. 2/5 of the adults are men. 2/3 of the children are boys. There are 2420 male members. How many adults are there?


                        Per the model,

                        2A + 2C = 2420

                        1A + 1C = 1210

                        2A = 5510 – 2420 + 1210 = 1880

                        1A = 940

                        The number of adults = 5 × 940 = 4700

Alternative solution:

             The number of female member = 5510 – 2420 = 3090

             From the model,

            Comparing male and female × 2,

            4U = 6180 – 2420 = 3760

            1U = 940

            The number of adults = 5 × 940 = 4700
