Question

Hi, can anyone help with this qn below? Tq! 🙂

_______________________________

John, Kevin and Larry had 216 game cards. Kevin gave some of his game cards to John and John’s game cards were tripled. Then John gave some of his game cards to Larry and Larry’s game cards were tripled. At the end, the three boys had an equal number of game cards. How many game cards did Kevin have at first?

As I understand the rules correctly the answer is 168.
So, 216/3=72; 72/3=24; (24+24)- 216 = 168 cards has Kevin
It’s interesting that I found that mathematic exercise after reading that gambling fifa write-up https://www.gamesreviews.com/articles/10/fifa-2021-loot-boxes-considered-gambling-or-not/ And I think must to help resolve such exercises

I think Kavin has 72 cards because my math is too weak so I am not sure. Most of the time I am spending on playing online casinos so I have a little knowledge about math.

216/3 = 72
Working backwards,
72/3 = 24 (Larry at first)
72 – 24 = 48 (John gave Larry)
Let the number of games cards John had at first be 1u
1u x 3 = 3u
3u – 48 = 72
3u ——- 72 + 48 = 120
1u ——- 120/3 = 40 (John at first)
216 – 40 – 24 = 152

Ans : 152 game cards.

This is a Multiple interested transfer question.

LCM  (left)

3 × 3 = 9

 After Transfer Before Transfer Before Larry 9u – 6u 3u 3u John 9u + 6u 15u – 10u 5u Kelvin 9u 9u + 10u 19u Total 27u 27u 27u

27u  = 216

1u = 216 ÷ 27 = 8

19u = 19 × 8 = 144
