Q1

Let the cost of 1 pair of slippers be 1u.

Thus, 4u + 9 = 7u -45
3u = 54
1u = 18

18 x 4 + 9 = 81

Ans: \$81

Q2

5 children-----90% x 50% = 45%
1 child----9%===36
1%==4
100%==400

Ans: 400 bookmarks

Q3

7 + 6 + 5 + 4 + 3 + 2 + 1 = 28

Ans: 28 handshakes

Q4

T : S----3 : 8= 9 : 24
T : C----9 : 2
Ratio---2 : 24 = 1 : 12

Ans: 1 : 12

Q5:40% of Paul's age is the same as 25% of James' age.Their total age is 130 years.Find Paul's age in 20 years' time.

Paul : James = 2/5 : 1/4 = 2/5 : 2/8 = 5 : 8
13u --- 130
1u ----10
Paul's current age---10 x 5 = 50
50 + 20 = 70

Ans: 70 yrs old

Hope this is not too late
