Steve made 50 more yellow pens than blue pens. After selling 3/5 of the yellow pens and 1/2 of the blue pens, he had 110 pens left. How many pens did he sell? 2 Now divide the bars into smaller parts to represent the fractions. The common denominator for 3/5 and 1/2 is 10, so we’ll use 10 parts.

Steve made 50 more yellow pens than blue pens. After selling 3/5 of the yellow pens and 1/2 of the blue pens, he had 110 pens left. How many pens did he sell? 4 We know 3/5 of yellow pens were sold, thus we can determine how many of the 50 extra yellow pens were sold and how many left Yellow Pens 50 More Blue Pens 3/5 X 50   =30 sold ! 2/5 X 50 = 20 left

Steve made 50 more yellow pens than blue pens. After selling 3/5 of the yellow pens and 1/2 of the blue pens, he had 110 pens left. How many pens did he sell? 5 Now let’s focus on the left hand side. Of the 110 pens left, 20 are the extra yellow pens (orange). So the remaining 110 - 20 = 90 are yellow and blue pens. Yellow Pens 50 More 3/5 X 50   =30 sold ! 2/5 X 50 = 20 left Blue Pens + = 110 - 20 = 90 pens

Steve made 50 more yellow pens than blue pens. After selling 3/5 of the yellow pens and 1/2 of the blue pens, he had 110 pens left. How many pens did he sell? 6 4 yellow units + 5 blue units = 90 pens. Thus each unit represents   90 / (4+5) = 10 pens Yellow Pens 50 More 3/5 X 50   =30 sold ! 2/5 X 50 = 20 left Blue Pens + 4 Units 5 Units 9 units = 90 pens 1 unit = 90/9 = 10 pens

Steve made 50 more yellow pens than blue pens. After selling 3/5 of the yellow pens and 1/2 of the blue pens, he had 110 pens left. How many pens did he sell? Answer : 110 + 30 = 140 Sold 185 More 7 3/5 X 50   =30 sold ! 2/5 X 50 = 20 left Yellow Pens Blue Pens + 4 Units 5 Units There were 11 units sold,   thus 11 units X 10 pens per unit = 110 pens
