Question

Answer

After Conrad give 1/4 to Gordon, he had 72 sweets left.

Therefore, 3/4 of Conrad sweets = 72

1/4 of Conrad sweets = 72/3 = 24

After Gordon receive 1/4 (24) sweets from Conrad, he got 64

So, 64 – 24 = 40 sweets

This 40 sweets is 2/3 of what he had at first because he gave 1/3 to Conrad.

So, 1/3 = 40/2 = 20

       3/3 = 20*3 = 60 sweets


Steps

3/4 of Conrad = 72

1/4 of Conrad = 72/3 = 24

2/3 of Gordon = 64 – 24 = 40

Gordon’s sweet at first = (40/2) * 3 = 60 sweets
