2 questions - Mrs Tan

Hi Sunny,

Please advise how to solve the following using UTM:

1. Ryan and Jude have some pencils each. If Ryan give Jude 28 pencils, he will have as many pencils as Jude. If Ryan gives Jude 12 pencils, he will have many pencils as Jude. How many pencils does each of them have?

2. At a party, Mrs. Lim serves either lemonade in glasses or cups. She has exactly 100 glasses or 150 cups of lemonade. If she has already served her guests 40 glasses and 28 cups of lemonade, what is the maximum number of glasses of lemonade she had left?
