Sarin’s mother bought some number of liquid soaps at an average price of $11 from the Kluang Mall. If she were to buy another liquid soap which cost $37, the average price would then become $13. How many numbers of liquid soaps did she buy?


The math model,

            The original average price = $11

            The final average price = $13

            The difference = 13 – 11 = $2

            The added liquid soap to be $13 (The average number)

            The remaining dollars = 37 – 13 = $24

            The number of liquid soaps she buy = 24 ÷ 2 = 12
