**Solution to P5 Maths (Rate) Question**

March 22, 2019

**An adultÂ can drink a bottle of juiceÂ in 27 days.Â Â **

**In one day, a man can drink 1/27 of a bottle.**

**Â **

**An childÂ can drink a bottleÂ of juiceÂ in 54 days.Â Â **

**In one day, a child can drink 1/54 of a bottle.**

**Â **

**To solve this, add up their rates:**

**Â **

**When you combine them together, 1/27 + 1/54 = 2/54 + 1/54 => 3/54**

**Simplify the answer:Â 3/54 => 1/18.**

**Â **

**If they both put their efforts into drinking from the same bottle, both an adultÂ and a childÂ can finish 1/18 of a bottleÂ a day. So how many days would it take them to finish one bottle of juice?**

**Â **

**1Â Ă· 1/18 => 18/18Â Ă· 1/18 =Â 18 days.**

**Â **

**It would take them a total of 18 days to finish the bottleÂ of juice.**

**Â **

**Just remember, kids:Â All things in moderation, and don't force yourself to drink a whole bottle at one go.**
