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

Primary 6 Prelims Revision 8

P6-Prelims-Ex 8

Ans:

1–  966

Low­est com­mon mul­ti­ple of 2, 3 and 7 –> 42

999 ÷ 42 = 23 R 33

23 × 42 = 966

 

2–  75%

3–  Thou­sandths

4–  12- 7

5–  28%

6–  $6000

7–  $2375

8–  94 marks

Total marks for the 3 tests –>  79 marks × 3 = 237

237 — 69 — 74 = 94 marks

Time Management

With the PSLE just around the cor­ner, this is a great time to remind all the kids tak­ing the Maths paper to work on their time man­age­ment. I always feel it would help if I had an extra 10 minutes.

 

Paper 1 -> 30 ques­tions, 50 minutes

50 ÷ 30 ≈ 1.6 min per question.

 

Paper 2 -> 18 ques­tions (5 Short-answer ques­tions + 13 Long-answer ques­tions), 1 hour 40 min Con­tinue read­ing
