Upper primary school mathematics question UPQ587

There were 352 people attended the anniversary dinner in the school hall. 75% of them were invited guests and the rest were students. Later in the night, some invited guests decided to leave and the number of invited guests was 3/5 that of the total number of people in the hall.

How many invited guests decided to leave the dinner?

Solution:

            The number of invited guests at first = 352 × 75% = 264

            The number of students at first = 352 – 264 = 88

            No student had left the hall,

            Hence,

            At final, 2/5 of the people in the hall were students,

            2 units = 88

            1 unit = 44

            The number of invited guests finally = 3 × 44 = 132

            The number of invited guests left the club = 264 – 132 = 132

Alternative solution(1):

            Per the model,

                        8 units = 352

                        1 unit = 44

                        The number of guests left the dinner

                        = 3 × 44

                        = 132

Alternative solution(2):

          75% people in the dinner were invited guests,

          Guests : Students : Total = 75 : 25 : 100 = 3 : 1 : 4 = 6 : 2 : 8

          Finally,

          Guests : Students : Final Total = 3 : 2 : 5

          There were no students left the hall,

          8 units = 352

          1 unit = 44

          Guests left the dinner in unit = 6 – 3 = 3 units

          The number of guests left the dinner

          = 3 × 44

          = 132
