**Reiny**, Wednesday, October 24, 2012 at 8:50amFarid had x

Peter had 2x

Peter : Kiran = 2x : k = 6 : 5

2x/k = 6/5

6k = 10x

k = 5x/3

Kiran had 5x/3

Farid gives (2/3)(x) to Peter

Farid gives (1/3)(x) to Kiran

but this (1/3)x = 10

x=30

So...

Farid had 30

Peter had 60

Kiran had 50

check:

Peter had twice as many as Farid ✔

ratio of peter to Kiran = 60:50 = 6:5 ✔

Kiran got 10 cards from Farid, which should be (1/3)(30) ✔
