Question

Samuel had 56 more toy cars than Thomas at fist. After Samuel had given away 130 toy cars, Thomas had twice as many toy cars as Samuel.

(a) How many toy cars did Samuel have now?

(b) How many toy cars did Samuel and Thomas have at first?

Answer

(a)

130 – 56 = 74

Since Samuel had 56 more toy cars than Thomas at first, after Samuel had given away 130 toy cars, Samuel had 74 toy cars less than Thomas.

Since Thomas has twice as many toy cars as Samuel, Samuel has 74 toy cars now.

(b)

Thomas: 74 x 2 = 148

Samuel: 148 + 56 = 204

Total: 204 + 148 = 352
