Hi, can someone pls clarfiy:

Many thanks

Hey there,

Learn to trust yourself and be confident in your own work at times.

Supposing there were 360 rackets at first.
Mon: Sold (1/4) = 90
Tue: Sold 20 fewer than on Mon = 70
Total Sold = 160
Left = 360 - 160 = 200

However, question says there were 160 rackets left.

Therefore, the answerkey (4) - 360 is incorrect.

Good work!

Cheers,
Edward
