Question

 

  1. There were 180 more bags in shop A than shop B at first. After 1/5 of the bags were transferred from shop A to shop B, there were 24 more bags in shop B than shop A.  How many bags were there in shop B at first?

 

 

 

Can anyone help to solve this problem please? Thanks

Answer

At first,

A -> 5u + 180

B -> 5u

Transfer 1/5 of A -> u + 36

In the end,

A -> 4u + 144

B -> 6u + 36

(6u + 36) – (4u + 144) = 24 

2u = 132

1u = 66

5u = 330

Shop B had 330 bags at first.
