There were 252 more cars than motorcycles in a car park. 1/4 of the number of cars was equal to 3/5 of the number of motorcycles. How many cars and motorcycles were there altogether?

  c = 252 + m

  1/4 c = 3/5 m        Sub in the red equation for c

1/4 (252 + m) = 3/5 m

  63 + 1/4 m = 3/5 m

    63 = 7/20 m

    m = 180     then c = 432
