Hi,

Pls took a look at the attached solution using models. A brief explanation here:

Step 1: Draw the before model, with Terry having 90 more.
Step 2: Label in the before model, the 60 that Rosana is going to spend
Step 3: Label in the before model, the corresponding 60 in Terry

Step 4: Draw the after model, with Rosana having spent the 60. You should try to ensure that the before and after models are roughly the same size so that your child can see it better.
Step 5: Label Terry to be 4 units and Rosana to be 1 unit, which is the interpretation for Terry having 4 times as many.
Step 6: Compare: the extra that Terry has now is 3 units, which corresponds to 120.

Step 7: Find 1 unit
Step 8: Find 4 units, which is Terry's amount (unchanged).

Do note that while there there only 3 number statements, the child has to go through is at least 8 thinking steps. Do be patient. Such questions take some time to master.

Hope this helps,
Ron

hi,
Terry had \$90 more than Rosana.
How much did Terry have at first?

Model 1:
_______ |___90___|
T: |_______|________|
_______
R: |_______|

Model 2:

____|60_|___90___|
T: |___ |___|________|
___
R: |___|<-----150------->

T = 4 x R

From the above model, 1 unit is equivalent to 1 box, and 150
is equivalent to 3 units.

so 1 unit = 150 divided by 3 = 50

so Terry = 4 x 50 = \$200
