a)
White | Red | Blue | |
5 units | 2 units | x 3 | |
7 units | 3 units | x 2 | |
14 units | 15 units | 6 units |
14 : 15 : 6
b)
White | Red | Blue | Total | |
Before | 14 units | 15 units | 6 units | 35 units |
After | 14 units | 15 units – 50 | 6 units | 35 units – 50 |
We know that after 5o red tulips were taken away, the red tulips made up 20% (1/5) of the total number of tulips. This means that if we multiply the quantity of red tulips by 5, it should equal the total number of tulips.
(15 units – 50) x 5 = 35 units – 50
75 units – 250 = 35 units – 50
75 units – 35 units = 250 – 50
40 units = 200
1 unit = 5
White tulips → 14 x 5
= 70
Blue tulips → 6 x 5
= 30
70 – 30 = 40 more white tulips than blue tulips
