# Question

Hi,

Can anyone help us with this?

Would be awesome if you could kindly show me how to do it step by step.

Thanks for your time.

Cheers

assume box A has 5 unit,  at beginning, A = 5 unit, B = 5 unit -125,

after give 1/5, which is one unit,  A = 4 unit, B = 6 unit -125, and now B has 15 more apples, so 2 unit = 125+15, one unit is 70, box A has 350 apples

Hi,

Thanks for the reply.

I am confused at  2 unit = 125+15.

Can you explain why? Thanks a lot.

That’s because after the transfer, A has 4 units, B has 6 unit -125. Since B has 15 more,
6 unit – 125 = 4 unit + 15
2 unit = 125 + 15

A = 4u  b = 6u -125, u got this part right?

and B has 15 more, that mean A + 15 = B

so  4u + 15 = 6u -125, we can write as 4u + 15 = 4u + 2u -125

so 15 = 2u -125,  although this is somehow like an equation, you can draw the model to get it, I cannot draw it here.

Box A : (5 units + 125) – (1/5) x (5 units + 125) = 4 units + 100
Box B : 5 units + (1/5) x (5 units + 25) = 6 units + 25

6 units + 25 = 4 units + 100 + 15
1 unit = 90/2 = 45
5 units + 125 + 5 units or 4 units + 100 + 6 units + 25
= 10 units + 125
= 10 x 45 + 125 = 575

Ans : 575 apples.
