Answer To Red Ribbon Question


The answer is £1.30. Well done if you got it right!


Using the fact that there are 100cm in one metre, when Amy buys 20cm of the ribbon, she is buying 1/5 of a metre.

So, 1/5 of £3.50 (which is the cost of 1m) is 70p.

But the question asked for the change from £2. So this is £1.30.


A question very similar to this appeared in the AQE Paper 2009, Paper 1 and could well be tested in the actual transfer test this year.
