The ratio of Maya's beads to Kayla's beads was12:7. After Maya bought another 28 beads and Kayla gave away 32 beads, 5/7 of Kayla's beads were left. How many more beads did Maya have than Kayla in the beginning? Find the ratio of Maya's beads to Kayla's beads?

  • Math -

    m/k = 12/7

    k-32 = 5/7 k
    so, 2/7 k = 32
    k = 112

    m/112 = 12/7
    m = 192

    so, in the beginning
    m-k = 80
    Maya had 80 more beads than Kayla

    Now,

    (m+28)/(k-32) = 220/80 = 11/4
