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
