Liam had 75% more magnets than John at first. Liam gave away 200% as many magnets as John. John was left with 25% of the magnets he had at first. What fraction of Liam's magnets did he have in the end?

L = 1.75 J     This is given

 

Then J gives away    'g'

 

J - g = .25 J

   .75J = g

 

Liam gave away 200% or   2 g     which is    1.5J

 

L = 1.75J   originally      then subtract   1.5J

  Lnew = .25J

       so the fraction Liam has at the end is    .25J / 1.75J = 1/7
