2 boys were telling each other the points they scored in a game. 
John : "I lost 48 points and finally has 3/5 of points left."

Peter : "I lost 1/3 of the points and now you has 18 points less than I do."

How many points did John and Peter had at first?

John:  48 ÷ (1 - 3/5)

          = 48*5/2

          = 120 points 

 

Peter:  x - 1/3x = (120 - 48) + 18 

                    2/3x = 90

                         x = 135 points

 

 

John: 120 points

Peter: 135 points
