Good day friends,

long time no speak.....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.
