About me

About Me: I am a first year history student at the University of Manchester. I have always had a love for maths and hope that my tutorials will demonstrate and pass on this passion for the subject. I am very patient, friendly and determined to help others achieve their goals. The Sessions: During the sessions, you will guide what we cover. It is important that the fundamentals are understood clearly, and this can be tested in an friendly environment beginning with simple questions developing into longer, more complicated exam questions. Whether the sessions are content based, or question heavy can change from week to week and is entirely up to each individual. What Next? If you have any questions you can message me through this website, or we can arrange a 'Meet the Tutor Session' (free), in which we can familiarise ourselves with each other and discuss specifics such as the exam board and any particular topics you would like tho start focusing on. I look forward to meeting you!

Questions Jessica has answered

Bag A contains £7.20 in 20p coins. Bag B contains only 5p coins. The number of coins in bag B is three-quarters of the number of coins in bag A. How much money is in bag B? (in £s)

We have been told that there is £7.20 in bag A, to simplify this, you can begin by turning this into pennies as well. So we have 720p in bag A. We need to know how many 20p coins this is, so we will divide 720p by 20p. By long division, we can work this out to be 36. So we now know we have 36 coins in bag A. We have been told that we have three quarters of the amount of coins in Bag B as we do in Bag A. So we can multiply 36 by 0.75, or work it through step by step in quarters to find that we therefore have 27 coins in Bag B. Next we can multiply 27 by 5 to work out that we have 135p in Bag B. We can finally divide 135 by 100 (as there are 100 pennies in a pound) to get the final answer of £1.35 in the correct unit.
