Dear Sunny,

(a) A bill of $72 was paid with $10, $5 and $1 notes. If 13 notes were used for payments, how many notes of each kind were used?

(b) Vanessa and Bobby had some telephone cards. AfterBobby gave 4/9 of his cards to Vanessa, the ratio of the number of Bobby’s cards to the number of Vanessa’s cards became 10 : 17. What was the ratio of the number of Vanessa’s cards to the number of Bobby’s cards at first?

(c) 12 workers took 10 days to make 800 bowls. How many days 3 workers need to make 40 bowls?

Hi Sunny,

Please advise how to solve the following using UTM:

1. Ryan and Jude have some pencils each. If Ryan give Jude 28 pencils, he will have as many pencils as Jude. If Ryan gives Jude 12 pencils, he will have many pencils as Jude. How many pencils does each of them have?

2. At a party, Mrs. Lim serves either lemonade in glasses or cups. She has exactly 100 glasses or 150 cups of lemonade. If she has already served her guests 40 glasses and 28 cups of lemonade, what is the maximum number of glasses of lemonade she had left?

### Factory Qn - Mr Shew

Dear Sunny,

I came across an interesting problem sum while revising Maths with Alden:

There are 500 male and 200 female employees in factory A. There are 400 male and 600 female employees in factory B. Some employees are transferred from factory A to factory B. After the transfer, the number of male employees is the same as the number of female employees in factory B and the number of male employees is twice the number of female employees in factory A. How many female employees were transferred from factory A to factory B? (Answer: 100)

Could you advise other method besides Model Drawing to solve this question? The question is taken from math456.com P5 Maths CAs and Sas for Top Primary Schools.
