Shepherd

Kuba makes a deal with a shepherd to take care of his sheep. Shepherd said Kuba that after a year of service, he would receive twenty gold coins and one sheep. But Kuba resigned just after the seventh month of service. But shepherd rewarded him and paid him five gold coins and one sheep. How many gold coins is equal to one sheep?

Correct result:

o =  16

Solution:

r=20+o 7/12 r=5+o   7/12 (20+o)=5+o  5o=80  o=16
