Question

Cheryl had 160 stickers more than Gareth. If Cheryl gave 185 stickers to Gareth, Gareth would have 3 times as many stickers as Cheryl. How many stickers did Gareth have at first?

Answer

At first:

Gareth: 1 unit

Cheryl: 1 unit + 160

After:

Gareth: 1 unit + 185

Cheryl: 1 unit + 160 – 85 = 1 unit – 25

Since Gareth had 3 times as much as Cheryl in the end

1 unit + 185 = 3 units – 75

2 units = 260

1 unit = 130 stickers
