  1. take x from bag 2
    take 3x from bag 1

    amount now in bag 2 = 100 - x
    amount now in bag 1 = 100 - 3x

    100 - 3 x = (1/2)(100 - x)

    200 - 6 x = 100 - x

    5 x = 100

    x = 20

    so
    bag 1 = 100 - 3(20) = 40
    bag 2 = 100 - 20 = 80

    green one has 9 more bushes of red currant than garden two. if 3 bushes from garden 2 were placed in garden 1 then garden 1 will have 1.5 times more bushes than garden two. how many bushes were in garden one

    i got no solutions
    x-9+3=x-3
    0=3

  6. x: garden 1 bushes
    y: garden 2 bushes

    x = y+9
    (x+3) = (3/2)(y-3)

    y+9+3 = (3/2)(y-3)
    2y+24 = 3y-9
    y = 33
    so, x = 42

    check:
    42+3 = (3/2)(33-3)
    45 = 3/2 * 30 yep

  7. X:The amount of bushes in garden 2
    garden 1: x+9
    garden 2: x
    Garden 1 has three less bushes now, and garden 2 has three more.
    garden 1: x+9-3=X+6
    garden 2: x+3

    Garden 1 has 1.5 times more bushes than garden 2.
    x+6=1.5(x+3)
    x+6=1.5x+4.5
    x+1.5=1.5x
    1.5=0.5x
    x=3

    Garden 1: 9 bushes
