Hi,please help me,
Q1. Wendy has 80 more thanMary but 50 more stamps than Jean.
Wendy gives 1/2 of her stamps to Mary.Then Mary gives 1/5 of her stamps to Jean. If
Jean has 62 more stamps than Wendy, how many stamps does Mary have in the end?

Q2.There were 1000 students at the parade ground and indoor sports hall. 40% of the
600 students at the parade ground were girls. 60% of the students at the indoor sports
hall were girls. After some students in both venues moved from one venue to the other, 30%
of the students in the parade ground and 70% of the students at the indoor sports hall
were girls. How many students were there in the indoor sports hall after the movement
had taken place?

Hey there ,

Following pls find my worked solutions:

Q1.

<before>

W |------------<--- 80 --->|
M |------------|<30>
J |-------------------|<-50->

W: 1p + 80
M: 1p
J: 1p + 30

<process>
W gives M: (-1/2)W

(1/2)W = (1/2)p + 40

<after>
W: 1p + 80 - (1/2)p - 40 = (1/2)p + 40
M: 1p + (1/2)p + 40 = (3/2)p + 40
J: 1p + 30

<process1>
M gives J: (-1/5)M

(1/5)M = (3/10)p + 8

<after1>
W: (1/2)p + 40
M: (3/2)p + 40 - (3/10)p - 8 = (12/10)p + 32 = (6/5)p + 32
J: 1p + 30 + (3/10)p + 8 = (13/10)p + 38


Given that Jean (J) has 62 more stamps than Wendy (W),

J - W = 62
(13/10)p + 38 - (1/2)p - 40 = 62
(8/10)p = 62 - 38 + 40 = 64
1p --> 64 × (10/8) = 80

Hence, M (at end) = (6/5)p + 32
(6/5)p + 32 --> [(6/5) × 80] + 32 = 96 + 32 = 128

=========

Q2.

<Before>

P: 600
S: 1000 - 600 = 400

GP: 40% × 600 = 240
BP: 600 - 240 = 360

GS: 60% × 400 = 240
BS: 400 - 240 = 160

<Process>
Students moved from one venue to another. Hence, total is unchanged before and after.

<after>

GP : BP
30 : 70
3 : 7

GS : BS
70 : 30
7 : 3

Total G = GP + GS
3p + 7u = 240 + 240
3p + 7u = 480 -- (1)

Total B = BP + BS
7p + 3u = 360 + 160
7p + 3u = 520 -- (2)

Eliminating part(p) qty:

(1)x7:
21p + 49u = 3360 -- (3)

(2)x3:
21p + 9u = 1560 -- (4)

(3)-(4):
49u - 9u = 3360 - 1560
40u --> 1800
1u --> 45

Number of students in Sports Hall (S) after movement had taken place:

GS + BS = 7u + 3u = 10u
10u --> 10 × 45 = 450


========

Trust the above helps.

Do let me know again if this is different from your <Answerkey> or if there's further clarification.

Cheers,
Edward
