Lord Ram

When lord Ram founded the breed white sheep was 8 more than black. Currently white sheep are four times higher than at the beginning and black three times more than at the beginning. White sheep is now 42 more than the black. How many white and black sheep together has Mr. Beran now?

Result

x =  102

Solution:


x = b+c
b = 42+c
b = 4a
c = 3(a-8)

b+c-x = 0
b-c = 42
4a-b = 0
3a-c = 24

a = 18
b = 72
c = 30
x = 102
