      1600
      1200
      400                = 4.00 pm
    4. What is its average speed for the whole journey? (4mks)
      1600
      0830
      7 30               = 7 ½ hrs or 15/2 hrs
      Average speed = total distance covered
                                 Total time taken
                              = 300/15/2
                              = 40km/h
  2. Daniela spent ¼ of her net January salary on school fees. She spent ¼ of the remainder on electricity and water bills. She then spent 1/9 of what was left on transport. If she finally had sh. 3400.
    1. What fraction of her January salary was spent on electricity and water bill?   (2mks)
      ¼ x ¾ = 3/16
    2. What fraction remained after she spent on fees, electricity and water bills?    (2mks)
      ¼ + 3/16 = 7/16
      Remaining = 16/167/16 = 9/16
    3. What fraction was spent on transport? (2mks)
      1/9 x 9/16 = 1/16
    4. Calculate her net January salary. (4mks)
      7/16 + 1 /16 = ½
      ½    -->   3400
      1     -->    1 x 3400
                           ½
                          = sh. 6800
