  1. The total amount collected.
    1250 × 380 = Sh. 475,000
  2. The total number of maize flour bought
    75 × 12 = 900packets
  3. The number of packets each family got.
    900 ÷ 50 = 18packets
  4. The amount of money that remained.
    1050 × 75 = 78750
    475,000 − 78,750
    =Sh. 396,250
  5. The amount of bursary that each student got. 
    396250 ÷ 125 = Sh. 3170
