Mashitah has RM 4 530 in savings. His father distributed RM 150 equally to Mashitah and his 2 younger siblings. How much money does Mashitah have now?

SOLUTION:

Mashitah's savings: RM 4 530
Money given by Mashitah's father: RM 150 divide 3
Mashitah's total money: RM \(\Box\)

Mathematic Equation: \(4\,530+(150\div3)=\Box\)

Solve the division first.

\(150\div3=50\)

Substitute into the equation and solve.

\(4\,530+(50)=4\,580\)

Therefore, Mashitah's total money is RM 4 580.
