Hi <tchtby>,

Following is my worked solution:

*** - for alignment purpose

<Before>
Fc : Fs ***** Rc : Rs
35 : 50 ***** 45 : 10

<F gave some c, s to R>

<After>
Fc : Fs ***** Rc : Rs
40 : 60 ***** 70 : 30
2 : 3 ******** 7 : 3

As this is an internal transfer, the <Unchanged Total> concept can be applied. I.e. total number of c in both F,R candy bags <before> and <after> has to be the same. Likewise , the total number of s.

Let the <After> ratios in F candy bag be part (p) qty , while that in R candy bag be unit (u) qty.

<c>
2p + 7u = 35 + 45
2p + 7u = 80 --- (1)

<s>
3p + 3u = 50 + 10
3p + 3u = 60 --- (2)

Eliminate (u) qty:

(1)x3:
6p + 21u = 240 --- (3)

(2)x7:
21p + 21u = 420 --- (4)

(4)-(3):
21p - 6p = 420 - 240
15p --> 180
1p --> 12

Number of c , s in F candy bag <After>:
= 2p + 3p
= 5p --> 5 × 12 = 60

Number of c , s in F candy bag <before>:
= 35 + 50 = 85

Gave:
85 - 60 = 25

Hence, F gave 25 chocolate bars and sweets altogether to R.

==========

Trust this helps.

Do let me know again if there's further clarification.

Cheers,
Edward
