This week Ahsan takes on two percentage questions.

Let your child have a good go at it before watching the video solution!

Question 1

Aziz buys cookies in sets of 5 jars for $60 and resells them in sets of 3 jars for $45. After selling all his cookies, he earned a profit of $90. How many 3-jar sets did he sell?

Question 2

Linda and Wendy donated a total of $650 to a charity organisation last week. Wendy donated 2.5% of her total savings and Linda donated 2% of her total savings. Out of the $650, Linda donated $150 than Wendy. How much was Linda’s and Wendy’s total savings?

Video solution

Sometimes, the best way to teach a kid is to have another kid to explain a concept in their own terms. The results, which constantly surprises us teachers, are often insightful, delightful and effective.
