Sharon sold 3/10 of her mangoes and Ahmad sold 1/4 of his.

They found that each of them had sold the same number of mangoes.

If Sharon had 36 fewer mangoes than Ahmad at first, how many mangoes did

Ahmad have left?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Sharon had => x                             Ahmad had => x + 36

 

Sharon sold => 3/10(x)                   Ahmad sold => 1/4(x + 36)

 

3x/10 = 1/4(x + 36)          x = 180

 

Ahmad had left =>       3/4(x + 36) = 162
