Angie has some red and blue beads. 40% of her beads were red. When she lost 50 blue beads, the number of blue beads was reduced by 1/3 its original number of beads. How many beads did Angie have in the end?

If I read you r questin correctly     50 blue beads is 1/3 of the bue beads   so , to start there was 150 blue beads

 

Blue beads represented 60 % of the original number of beads (because red represented 40%

150 /n  x 100% = 60     n= 250 beads originally

 

 

now if she loses 50 beads   she has      200 left
