Solving Challenging Primary Mathematical Problems

Can we solve this 2009 PSLE question within 5 min?

Jim bought some chocolates and gave half of it to Ken. Ken bought some sweets and gave half of it to Jim. Jim ate 12 sweets and Ken ate 18 chocolates. The ratio of Jim’s sweets to chocolates became 1:7 and the ratio of Ken’s sweets to chocolates became 1:4. How many sweets did Ken buy?

Principal trainer of Ace Maths will demonstrate how it can be done.

1p+12 = 1u

x4

Jim bought some chocolates and gave half of it to Ken. Ken bought some sweets and gave half of it to Jim. Jim ate 12 sweets and Ken ate 18 chocolates. The ratio of Jim’s sweets to chocolates became 1:7 and the ratio of Ken’s sweets to chocolates became 1:4. How many sweets did Ken buy?

Jim

4p+48 = 4u

4u+18 = 7p

7p

4u

18

4u = 7p-18

12

18

4p+48 = 7p-18

7p

1p

48

1p + 12 = 22+12 = 34

34x2 = 68

3p = 66

Ans.: 68 sweets

1p = 22
