Hi there,

Following pls find the worked solution.

Draw a comparison model for this question.

Let the Number be 1p. So 4x will be as follows:

|---|---|---|---|

2/3 of the Number means we have to further split 1p of it into 3 equal units (u).

So the above model (of 4x the Number) will have 4p x 3 = 12u. 2/3 of the same Number (3u) = 2u.

Given the difference is 90, we have ...

12u - 2u --> 90
10u --> 90
1u --> 9

Hence, Number = 1p = 3u --> 3 x 9 = 27

==========================================

Trust the above helps.

Cheers,
Edward
