Tulips and daffodils

Two hundred twenty tulips and daffodils are planted in the flowerbed. One-third of all tulips and one-sixth of all daffodils equals the number of all tulips. How many tulips and how many daffodils?

Correct result:

n =  176
t =  44

Solution:


t+n = 220
t/3 + n/6 = t

n+t = 220
n-4t = 0

n = 176
t = 44
