Hi

I think the second sentence should be: "How much must Ali give Abu so that Abu will have \$12 more than Ali?"

Total amount of money remained the same after Ali gave some money to Abu.

Total amount of money --> \$ 54

In the end, Abu will have \$ 12 more than Ali,
so, amount of money Ali will be left with --> \$ (54- 12) / 2 = \$21

\$32 - \$ 21 = \$ 11
Ali must give \$ 11 to Abu so that Abu will have \$ 12 more than Ali

cheers.

Hi

as it is, the question: "Ali has \$32 and Abu has \$22.How much must Ali give Abu so that Abu will have \$12 more than Abu?" is flawed because "so that Abu will have \$12 more than Abu" is meaningless. if I have \$100, and I get \$10 more, I will have \$110 so it is not possible for me to have any amount more or less than what I have at the same time unless I am referring to different time instances eg. "how much must Ali give to Abu so that Abu will have \$12 more than what Abu had at first" is possible - just give Abu \$12 more then he will have \$12 more than what he had at first.

cheers.

Re: Internal Transfer method

Hi

The question was a typo from the centre.
The question goes as
Ali has\$32 and Abu has \$22.How much money must Ali give Abu so that Abu will have \$12 more than Ali?

The solution to this as given by the centre is
If Ali gives Abu some money so that Abu has \$12 more than Ali
They have a total of 22+32=54
Ali(in the end)->(54-12)/2=21
so Ali must give 32-21=11
Ali must give \$11 to Abu so that Abu will have \$12 more than Ali.
