Comparison Model

There are 560 children in the park. There are 80 fewer boys than girls. How many girls are there in the park?

G

B 80

560

560 − 80 = 480 2u---- 480 1u --- 480 ÷ 2 = 240 240 + 80 = 320

There are 320 girls.

22

Repeated Identity

June collected thrice as many stamps as Pauline. If Pauline collected 7 stamps, how many stamps did June collect?

?

7

June

Pauline

1u----> 7 3u -----> 7 x 3 = 21

June collected 21 stamps.

Internal Transfer

James has 24 more marbles than Tom. How many marbles must James give Tom so that they have an equal number of marbles?

24

James

Tom

24 ÷ 2 = 12

James must give 12 marbles

Internal Transfer with Unchanged Total

There were a total of 180 beads in Bag A and

Bag B. After 47 beads were transferred from Bag A to

Bag B, there were twice as many beads in Bag B than in

Bag A. How many beads were there in each bag at first?

3 u 180 1 u 180 3 = 60 2 u 60 x 2 = 120

At first, Bag A 60 + 47 = 107 Bag B 120 – 47 = 73
