8. 136 + 64 ÷ 4 ( 9 – 7 ) = 136 + 64 ÷ 4 ( 2 )
= 136 + 64 ÷ 8
= 136 + 8
= 144
9. ( 40 + 56 ) x 3 ÷ ( 4 + 12 ) = 96 x 3 ÷ 16
= 288 ÷ 16
= 18
Problem solving involving combined operations of whole numbers
1. The bus fare from Bintulu to Sibu is RM 32 for an adult and RM 18 for a child. A family consist of 3 adults and 5 children wish to travel to Bintulu to Sibu by bus. Calculate the total fare paid by the family.
( RM 32 x 3 adults) + ( RM 18 x 5 children )
= RM 96 + RM 90
= RM 186
Therefore the total fare paid by the family is RM 186
2. Mr. Chua bought 16 story books and 19 colouring books for RM 242. If each story book costs RM 8, find the cost of one colouring book.
( RM 242 – 16 x RM 8 ) ÷ 19
= ( RM 242 – RM 128 ) ÷ 19
= RM 114 ÷ 19
= RM 6
Therefore the cost of one colouring book is RM 6
