Three boys have the same number of blue toy cars. 1/4 of Nelson's toy cars and 4/5 of Ted's toy cars and of 2/3 Kieran's toy cars are blue. The total number of toy cars which are not blue is 75. How many toy cars does Ted have?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

3x + x/4 + x/2 = 75

 

x = 20           (Each boy has 20 blue toy cars)

 

Ted has 25 toy cars 

 

This one's quite tough. laugh
