Arul, Bill and Carl had 528 charity coupons. Arul gave 3/8 of his charity

coupons to Bill and 1/6 of his charity coupons to Carl. After that, all 3 boys

had the same number of charity coupons.

(a) Who had more charity coupons at first. Bill or Carl?

(b) Based on your answer in (a), how many more charity coupons did the

boy have at first?

A + B + C==528.....................................(1)

A - 3/8A - 1/6A ==11/24A left

11/24A ==B + 3/8A...................................(2)

B + 3/8A == C + 1/6A............................(3), solve for A, B, C

**A==384 and B==32 and C==112 - what the 3 boys started with.**

**a) Carl had 120 vs Bill who had 32**

**b) See above**
