Main Course

Dear darlings,

Reflect on this maxim : Talent without discipline is like octopus on roller skates. There's plenty of movement but you never know if it's going to be forward, backwards or sideways.- H.Jackson Brown, Jr  (Pupil diary Pg 44)

Please try these 3 questions:

1. In a class,  3/5    of the pupils are girls and  1/6    of the girls wear spectacles. If   3/4   of the boys wear spectacles, what fraction of the pupils wear spectacles?
2. Mrs Rahim baked some muffins.   3/4   of them were blueberry muffins and the rest of them were chocolate muffins. She sold 5/6 of the blueberry muffins and  1/2  of the chocolate muffins. She had 20 muffins left. How many muffins did Mrs Rahim bake?
3. Ahmad and Mei Ling saved $800 altogether.   1/4 of Ahmad's savings was $65 more than  1/5  of Mei Ling's savings. How much money did Mei Ling save?
