  9. 9. Example 1 The perimeter of the figure is 99 cm. How many pieces of the triangles are used to make the figure? equilateral triangles of side 3 cm based on PSLE 2010
  10. 10. Example 2 A shop sells curry puffs for 40 cents each. Find the greatest number of curry puffs that can be bought using $95. 9500 ÷ 40 = 237.5 $95 ÷ $0.40 = 237.5 The greatest number of curry puffs that can be bought is 237. based on Specimen Paper PSLE
  11. 11. Example 3
  12. 12. The total number of stamps in Album A, Album B and Album C was 444 at first. Dennis gave away 3/5 of the stamps from Album A, put 24 more new stamps into Album B and added some stamps into Album C until the number of stamps in Album C became three times its original number. The ratio of the number of stamps in Album A to that in Album B to that in Album C became 2 : 5 : 9. How many more stamps were there in Album C than Album A in the end? (TeckWhye Primary School, Primary 6) Album A Album B Album C
  13. 13. The total number of stamps in Album A, Album B and Album C was 444 at first. Dennis gave away 3/5 of the stamps from Album A, put 24 more new stamps into Album B and added some stamps into Album C until the number of stamps in Album C became three times its original number. The ratio of the number of stamps in Album A to that in Album B to that in Album C became 2 : 5 : 9. How many more stamps were there in Album C than Album A in the end? (TeckWhye Primary School, Primary 6) 7 units  ? 7 units  36 x 7 = 210 + 42 = 252 There were 252 more stamps in Album C than Album A in the end. Album A Album B Album C 468 13 units  444 + 24 = 468 1 unit  468 ÷ 13 = 36 390 78
