Good day friends,

 

long time no speak...smiley..This is for a grade 6 learner...My reason for asking assistance is because of the fact that this learner has not yet in his curriculum had to do with distributive laws, etc...so there has to be a different approach, which is what I'm looking for, please.

I have done the following:

 

Louis (x) =135

Sam (y) = 990

additional amount = z

 

so:..4(x + z) = y + z

       4(135 + z) = 990 +z

       540 + 4z = 990 +z

       4z - z= 990 - 540

        3z = 450

         z = 150.

 

So Jane gave 300 in total, she has 270 left....

 

Like I mentioned, this is way too difficult at his level....please help...Thank you kindly.

Hi Juriemagic,

 

A smart little kid could use trial and error.
