Kor Ming had an equal number of roses, tulips and daisies. He gave away 37 roses, some tulips and daisies. He had twice as many tulips as daisies left. He had 19 fewer roses than tulips left. The total number of flowers left was 116. How many daisies were given away?

At first,

Rose=Tulip=Daisies

At the end, total no of flowers=116

D=1U

T=2U

R-2U-19

To calcualte each U,

116+19 divide by 5

=135/5 = 27

Since Rose is given absolute number, calculate how many roses at first,

R=(2U-19)+37

=(2x27-19)+37

=72

So, at first Tulip=Daisies=Rose=72

Daisies=72-1U

=72-27

=45

Ans: 45 Daisies
