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

Q1. In a class library, there are some fiction and non-fiction books. If we remove 1 non-fiction book from the library, 1/7 of the remaining books are non-fiction books. If, instead of removing 1 non-fiction book, we remove 2 fiction books from the library, then 1/5 of the remaining books are non-fiction books. How many books are there in the class library?
