Sample SMaths Challenge Question for Category Primary/Year 3

Answer with solution:

Steven had just enough money to buy 11 toy airplanes. However, he bought only 4 toy airplanes and had RM119 left. How much money did he have at first?

a) RM197                   c) RM130        

b) RM187                  d) RM170

Difference in number of toy airplanes

= 11 - 4

= 7

7 toy airplanes RM119

1 toy airplane RM119 ÷ 7 = RM17

11 toy airplanes 11 x RM17 = RM187

Steven had RM187 at first.
