# The store

The store received the same number of cans of peas and corn. The first day sold 10 cans of peas and 166 cans ofcorn so that left 5 times more peas than corn cans.

How many cans of each kind were in the store?

Result

a =  205
b =  205

#### Solution: a=b
a-10 = 5(b-166)

a-b = 0
a-5b = -820

a = 205
b = 205
