     Mark, Nathan and Owen shared some stickers. 12.5% of Mark's stickers were equal

     to 25% of Nathan's stickers. The number of stickers Owen had was 1/4 the number of

     stickers Mark had.

a)  What is the ratio of the number of stickers Mark had to the number of stickers

     Nathan had to the number of stickers Owen had?
b)  After Nathan gave 58 stickers to Mark, Owen had 1/5 of Mark's stickers. How many

     stickers did the boys have in all?

 

 

 

 

this is not homework but can be so tricky

M => 4x           N => 2x           O => x

 

M : N : O = 4 : 2 : 1

 

x / 4x + 58 = 1/5

 

x = 58

 

Boys had 406 stickers.
