Please advise how to solve the following question.

Julian had 300 more cards than Faizal. Julian gave 3/5 of his cards to Faizal. Faizal then gave 1/4 of the total number of what he had then to Julian. In the end, Faizal had 300 more cards than Julian. How many cards did Julian have at first?

At first
Julian----5u + 300
Faizal----5u

Julian gave 3/5 to Faizal, 3/5 x 300=180
Julian---5u - 3u + 300 - 180=2u + 120
Faizal--- 5u + 3u + 180= 8u + 180

Faizal gave 1/4 to Julian, 1/4 x 180 = 45
Julian---2u + 2u + 120 + 45= 4u + 165
Faizal---8u - 2u + 180 - 45 = 6u + 135

Faizal has 300 more, this means
4u + 165 + 300 = 6u + 135
2u = 465 - 135 = 330
1u = 165

Julian at first----165 x 5 + 300 = 1125

Ans : 1125 cards
