On Monday, Harry had 75% as many toys as Teddy did. On Tuesday, Harry acquires 32 more toys, and Teddy acquires 15% as many toys as he had on Monday. If   Harry and Teddy now have the same number of toys, how many toys did Harry have on Monday?

Solution: 60

On Monday:

Let Teddy has x number of toys.

Therefore, Harry has .75 x toys (75% of x).

On Tuesday,

Harry has .75x + 32 toys and Teddy has 1.15x toys.

Since, they have the same number of toys.

Therefore, .75x + 32 = 1.15x

Or x = 80.

Therefore, Harry had .75 (80) = 60 toys on Monday.
