Amy baked some chocolate and vanilla muffins.
She gave away 3/5 of the chocolate muffins and 1/7 of the vanilla muffins. She gave exactly half of the total number of muffins.
In the end, she was left with 24 more chocolate muffins than vanilla muffins. How many chocolate muffins did she bake?

And: 1/5 chocolate muffins = 5/7 vanilla muffins.

5/25 chocolate muffins = 5/7 vanilla muffins

10/25 chocolate muffins - 6/7 vanilla muffins > 24

(5-1) units = 24
25 units = (25x24)/4 = 150

Amy baked 150 chocolate muffins.

Is my answer and working correct?
