This is a fractional transfer question.

LCM (left)

J : K= 15: 8

60/100 = 12/20 = 180/300 (J)

75/100 = 15/20 = 120/160 (K)

   Beofore  Transfer  After    
Julie  300u – 120 180u  
Kenneth 160u  – 40 120u  
Pauline  800u + 160 960u  

20% = 160u

100% = 160× 5 = 800u

960u = 96

120u = 120/960 × 96 = 12 card
