Hi everybody! I'm stuck with this maths question. May you help me? Please show your working clearly.

Qn 1. There were some sweets in Containers X, Y and Z. Container X had 20% of the total number of sweets in Containers X, Y and Z. The ratio of the number of sweets in Container Y to the number of sweets in Containers X and Z is 2:1. If there are 24 more sweets in Container Y than Container Z, find the total number of sweets in Containers X, Y and Z.

Hey Shirley,

This question is similar to that of your Question 3. Kindly review the concept and method applied to Q3 and then try to do the same here.

Answer: 45 sweets

Do let me know again if you really still cannot apply similar method.

All the best,
Edward
