Can somebody help me solve these questions?
Q1:A cake shop had some tarts to sell.4\5 of them were pineapple tarts and the remaining were blueberry tarts.After 5\8 of the pineapple tarts and 2\3 of the blueberry tarts were sold,there were 979 tarts left.How many tarts were sold?

Q2:Alvin,Ben,Chris and David shared the cost of the gift.Alivin gave \$270,Chris gave 1\3 of the total amount,while David gave 2\9 of the amount.If Ben gave \$40 less than Chris,what was the total cost of the gift?

Q1:A cake shop had some tarts to sell.4\5 of them were pineapple tarts and the remaining were blueberry tarts.After 5\8 of the pineapple tarts and 2\3 of the blueberry tarts were sold,there were 979 tarts left.How many tarts were sold?

Ratio of P:B----4 : 1 = 24: 6
Units of P left----3/8 x 24u= 9u
Units of B left---1/3 x 6u = 2u

9u + 2u = 11u---979
1u = 979/11= 89

Total units sold----30u - 11u = 19u
19u---89 x 19 = 1691

Ans: 1691 tarts

Q2:Alvin,Ben,Chris and David shared the cost of the gift.Alivin gave \$270,Chris gave 1\3 of the total amount,while David gave 2\9 of the amount.If Ben gave \$40 less than Chris,what was the total cost of the gift?

Let the total cost be 9u
Chris---3u
David----2u
Alvin + Ben---4u

Since Ben has \$40 less than Christ, this means
Ben----3u - 40

Thus,3u - 40 + 270 = 4u
3u +230 = 4u
1u= 230
9u = 230 x 9 =2070

Ans: \$2070
