1/5 of Lilian's sweets is equal to 1/4 of Kelvin's sweets. At a Christmas party, Kelvin
received another 30 sweets and Lilian gave away 72 of her sweets. They then had an
equal number of sweets.

(a) How many sweets did Lilian have at first?
(b) How many sweets did both of them have in the end?

K has 4u of sweets, L has 5u.
5u - 72 = 4u + 30
1u = 102
a)L had 5 X 102 = 510 sweets at first.
b)Both had 438 sweets each in the end, or 876 altogether.
Hope this helps!
