Kai and Jordan had 300 marbles altogether. Kai gave away 25% fewer marbles than Jordan. Jordan was left with 50% as many as the number of marbles he gave away. Kai had 75% of the total number of marbles the boy left in the end. How many marbles did Kai have in the end?
So Kai and Jordan had 300 marbles together.
Since Kai gave away 25% less marbles than Jordan, I'm guessing that Jordan gave away 75% of the total marbles.
Half of 300 is 150
Jordan has 150 marbles left
A quarter of 150 is 37
Kai gave away 37 marbles
I confused myself throughout this problem but I think this is correct.
" Kai had 75% of the total number of marbles the boy left in the end. "
