Asked by Koushika

Jar y has 22 more sweets than z and z has 16 more sweets than x. The total number of sweets in z and y is 5 times the number of sweets in x. Find the total number and how many sweets should be transferred from y to other tow so there is equal in 3?

If you write y and z in terms of x (z= x+16 and y=x+38) you should easily be able to work out how many sweets are in which jar :)
