Primary 6 Prelims Revision 9

P6-Prelims-Ex 9

Ans:

1– $45

Julian –> 1u

Fred­er­ick –> 2u

Mar­cus –> 6u

5u –> $25

1u –> $5

$5 × 9u = $45

 

2–  16 more tricycles

Assume all are tri­cy­cles –> 56 × 3 = 168 wheels

168 — 148 = 20 wheels extra

Each bicy­cle has 1 lesser wheel than each tricycle.

There­fore, 20 ÷ 1 = 20 bicycles

56 — 20 00= 36 tricycles

36 — 20 = 16 more tri­cy­cles than bicycles

 

3–  $44

4–  22.5 km/h faster

Mar­cus’ speed –>  270 /4 = 67.5 km/h

Mar­cus’ new speed –>  270/3 = 90 km/h

90 km/h — 67.5 km/h = 22.5 km/h faster

 

5–  396 boys

Girls –>  1u × 5 = 5u

Boys –>  (1u + 16) × 3 = 3u + 48

8u + 48 –>  976 pupils

8u –> 928

1u –> 116

116 × 3 + 48 = 396 boys

 

6–  $2945

7 hand­bags + 5 watches = 3 hand­bags + 11 watches

7 hand­bags — 3 hand­bags = 11 watches — 5 watches

4 hand­bags = 6 watches

6 watches –>  $285 × 4 = $1140

1 watch –>  $1140 ÷ 6 = $190

$285 × 7 + $190 × 5 = $2945

 

7–  300 stick­ers

Maxwell –> 100%

Jeanet­ter –> 120%

20/100 × 120% = 24%

120%  - 24% = 96% left

96% –>  288 stickers

1% — 3 stickers

3 × 100 = 300 stick­ers

 

8–  153 cm

17 + 13 = 30 cm — 3 pieces

1 piece –>  10 cm

14 × 10 cm + 13 cm = 153 cm

5–  28%

6–  $6000

7–  $2375

Primary 6 Prelims Revision 6

P6-Prelims-Ex 6

Ans:

1–  $1225

18% = 9/50

90% = 9/10

There­fore,

Bran­don   :   Charles
50        :     10
5          : 1

6u –> $1470

1u –> $245

$245 × 5u = $1225

 

2–  9/10 h

Time taken to fill 1/9 of the tank –>  2/5 ÷ 4 = 1/10 h

1/10 h × 9 = 9/10 h

 

3–  8 pen­tagons

3 × 5 = 15 match­sticks for the 3 extra pentagons

60 — 15 = 45 match­sticks (The num­ber of squares and pen­tagons are now the same)

Num­ber of match­sticks needed to make 1 square and 1 pen­ta­gon -> 4 + 5
= 9

45/9 = 5

5 + 3 = 8 pen­tagons

 

4–  10 hours

55 min = 11/12 h

11/12 h + 3/4 h = 1   2/3 h

5  1/2 h ÷ 11/12 h = 6 sets

6 × 1   2/3 h = 10 hours

 

5–  $40

85% — 55% = 30%

30% –> $12

100% –>  12/30 × 100 = $40

Primary 6 Prelims Revision 3

P6-Prelims-Ex 3

Ans:

1–  3 : 12 : 17

2–  4.95 cm

Length of the tank –>  180 cm³ ÷ 12 edges = 15 cm

33/100 × 15% = 4.95 cm

 

3–  100 balls

Total units of balls –>  5u + 4u = 9u

Units of balls in each bag in the end –>  9u/2 = 4.5u

5u — 4.5u = 0.5u —>  10 balls

1u –>  10 × 2 = 20 balls

20 × 5u = 100 balls

 

4–  540 km

5–  $24

1 blouse –> 1u

1 pair of jeans –>  1u + $12

3 pairs of jeans + 4 blouses –>  (1u + $12) × 3 + 4u = 7u + $36

7u + $36 -> $204

7u –>  $204 — $36 = $168

1u –>  $24

 

6–  891 beads

Red : Blue + Green
4   : 5

Blue : Green
3    :    8     –> 11u

Adjust the units for the blue and green beads such that they are the same in both cases.

Com­mon mul­ti­ple of 5 and 11 is 55u

There­fore,

Red  :  Blue + Green
44   : 55

Blue  :  Green
15   : 40

Red  :  Blue  :  Green
44 :    15   : 40

44u — 40u = 4u –>  36 beads

1u –>  9 beads

44u + 55u = 99u —->  9 beads × 99 = 891 beads
