Sonja discovered 2/5 of the pens she bought were not working. She also noticed 1 /4 of the
working pens were red. If 36 of the working pens were red, how many pens did Sonja buy?
Solution 1
•  36 red pens represent 1/ 4 of the working pens Therefore, the total
number of working pens = 36 × 4 = 144

Continue
Solution 2
• Fraction of working pens out of the total = 1 – 2 /5 = 3/ 5

Continue
Solution 3
• 144 pens represent 3 /5 of the total pens bought 1/ 5 of the total
pens bought = 144 ÷ 3 = 48

Continue
Solution 4

Continue

• The total number of pens bought = 48 × 5 = 240
