Main Course

Dear darlings,

Reflection : We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence then is not an act, but a habit. - Aristotle (Pupil diary Pg 47)

Your long awaited questions:

1.  3/4 of George’s salary is equal to 1/3 of Patrick’s salary.
   If Patrick earns $2000 more than George, find their total salary.

2. At first, Sarah had 4/7 of the number of marbles Jack had. When Sarah received 36 marbles from Jack, both had the same number of marbles. How many marbles were there altogether?

3.  The number of goats in Farm X was  9/4 the number of goats in Farm Y. After 35 goats were transferred from Farm X to Farm Y, there was an equal number of goats in each farm. How many goats were there altogether?
