Hi, please help..

At Station A, the ratio of the number of children to the number of adults on a train was 4:5.
At the next station, 12 children alighted and 10 adults boarded the train.
The ratio of the number of children to the number of adults on the train then became 7:10.
How many children were on the train at first?

Thank you.

This concept is usually called external change, as the change values changes the end ratio units.
LCM the end ratio units to create an equal stage, as you would in simultaneous change


(C4u - 12 = 7p) x 10
(A5u + 10 = 10p) x 7

C40u - 120 = 70p
A35u + 70 = 70p

therefore

5u is 120 + 70 = 190
1u is 38

Children at first is 4 x 38 = 152

apologies I draw models but i dont how to do it with this app
