Andy had a large collection of trading cards of famous soccer players. Many of his cards featured either Neymar (15%) or Mbappe (10%). However, Andy grew increasing discontent with Neymar’s behavior (as a “diver”) and traded all of his Neymar cards for other cards. Since Neymar cards were still quite valuable despite his antics, he managed to trade one Neymar card for 3 other cards (but none of them featured Mbappe). After the trade, what fraction of his cards feature Mbappe?

For convenience sake.....let Andy's original collection   =  100 cards

 

So   Neymar comprised   15 of these  and  Mbappe  comprised  10

 

If he traded 1  Neymar card for  3 other cards, then   he got rid  of 15 cards and acquired 3  times this many =  45

 

So....now he has     100 - 15  + 45 =    130 cards

 

And  Mbappe's cards must  be     10  / 130   =   1/13  of the  collection
