Harry had 3 times as many coloured papers as Ron at first. Harry used up 1785 of his coloured papers and Ron used up 455 of his coloured papers. In the end, they had the same number of coloured papers. How many coloured papers did Harry have at first?

1785 minus 455 is 2 units which is 1330

1330 divided by 2 is 665 which is 3 units.

665 multiplied by 3 is 1995 which is how much harry had at first.

check:665 minus 455 is 210

1995 minus 1785 is 210

correct
