Q12
D 
<(15)>(9)
M(+9)
From the model,
3 units> 9 + 15 + 9 = 33
1 unit > 33 / 3 = 11
Don > 11 x 4 = $44 at first
Q13
Tabulate to find solution
Since the sum of pupils from other classes > 33+25+12+7= 77, we should start with number greater than 77
Multiple of 5> 80859095
(+1 left out) > 81869196
Multiple of 7> 778491
(+5 left out) > 828996
common total is 96
therefore, pupils in class 5B> 96  77 = 19
