Chloe and Sam had an eqaul number of apples at first. Chloe bought 3 more apples and Sam bought 23 more apples. Chloe then had 60% as many apples as Sam. How many apples did Sam have at first?

Let's assume that Chloe and Sam had \(x\) apples at first.

So then, 

 

\(x+3={60 \over 100}(x+23)\)

\(100x+300=60x+1380\)

\(40x=1080\)

\(x=27\)

 

∴ Sam had 27 apples at first.
