Mickey and Minnie shared a box of matches. If Mickey was given 10 fewer matches, Minnie would have 5 times as many matches as Mickey.
If Mickey was given 10 more matches, he would have 1/2 as many matches as Minnie.
What percentage of matches did Mickey receive?

The meaning of this question is unclear.

 

If Mickey was given 10 fewer matches does that mean that Minnie gets 10 more?

How is the box shared.  Are there any matches left in the box?

 

Unclear questions like this cannot be definitely answered.  I know it is not the fault of the students. 

Perhaps you should answer by explaining why the question is unclear and therefore unanswerable.
