Q16 : NY Primary School organised a 2Day Charity FunFair. Admission tickets were sold to every visitor at a cost of $40. On the first day, 120 more children visited the funfair than adults. The number of children on the second day was 25% more than the number of children on the first day. The number of adults on the second day was 5% less than the number of adults on the first day. There were a total of 2570 people at the funfair on the second day.
(a) Find the number of adults at the funfair on the first day.
(b) What was the total sum of money collected from the sale of the admisssion tickets for both days?
Q13 : There were 420 children in a childcare centre. 20% of the children were girls. Then some girls were enrolled into the childcare centre and the number of girls became 0.4 of the total number of children in the childcare centre. How many additional girls were enrolled into the childcare centre?
Kindly assist ASAP! Many thanks

Q13
Girls [__added__][___20%____] ~ (0.4)
Total [__added__][_____________420______________] ~ (1.0)
Girls at first : 20/100 x 420 = 84
0.6 > 420  84 = 336
0.1 > 336 รท 6 = 56
0.4 > 56 x 4 = 224
Additional girls enrolled > 224  84 = 140

Q16
a) Assume the number of children on Day 1 is 100u + 120 and the number of adults is 100u. So on day 2, the number of children is 125u + 150 (25% more) and the number of adults is 95u (5% less). Total people on Day 2 is 220u + 150, which is also 2570. Thus 220u is 2570150=2420. 1u is 2420/220=11. Adults on day 1 is 100u, so 100x11=1100.
b) Total people on both days > 100u + 120 (children on day 1) + 100u (adults on day 1) + 220u + 150 (total people on day 2) = 420u + 270.
Total people on both days > 420x11 + 270 = 4890.
Money collected > 4890 x $40 = $195600.
Hope I helped
