Hansel and Sherman had some blue and green stickers.  3/5 of Hansel's stickers

were blue while 2/3 of Sherman's stickers were blue.  Hansel gave 3/4 of his blue 
stickers to Sherman. In the end, 7/10 of Sherman's stickers were blue and Hansel

had 165 stickers left.


(a)    How many blue stickers did Hansel give to Sherman?

 

(b)    How many stickers did Sherman have in the end?

\( {3 \over 9} * {3 \over 5}x + {2 \over 3}y / y + {3 \over 9} * {3 \over 5}x = {7 \over 10}\)
x - 3/9x * 3/5x = 16 so x = 20

so y = 36

a) 3/9 * 3/5x = 45 stickers 

b) 405 stickers in the end.
