Five pupils

Five pupils clean 30 chairs one hour before four pupils. How many chairs clean one pupil in 1 hour?

Correct result:

n =  1.5

Solution:

5n(t1)=30 4nt=30  5nt5n=30 4nt=30   5 30/45n=30  5 30/45 n=30  20n=30  n=32=1.5t=30/(4 n)=30/(4 1.5)=5=32=1.55n(t-1)=30 \ \\ 4nt=30 \ \\ \ \\ 5nt - 5n=30 \ \\ 4nt=30 \ \\ \ \\ \ \\ 5 \cdot \ 30/4 - 5n=30 \ \\ \ \\ 5 \cdot \ 30/4 - 5 \cdot \ n=30 \ \\ \ \\ 20n=30 \ \\ \ \\ n=\dfrac{ 3 }{ 2 }=1.5t=30/(4 \cdot \ n)=30/(4 \cdot \ 1.5)=5=\dfrac{ 3 }{ 2 }=1.5



Our examples were largely sent or created by pupils and students themselves. Therefore, we would be pleased if you could send us any errors you found, spelling mistakes, or rephasing the example. Thank you!
