Two travelers, one with 64 barrels of wine, other with 20 barrels of wine. They don't have enough money to pay duty for the same. First traveler pays 40 francs and gives his 5 barrels, Second traveler gives his 2 barrels but gets 40 francs in exchange. What's value of each barrel, and duty for each barrel?

Ghazala Farheen   hello i wud lik to interrupt... here u ppl are calculating the duty cost for the barrel both the travelers has given to him... so why he should pay for it...
and i calculated the way that first travlr is paying for 64-5 -59 barrels and traveler 2 is paying for 20-2=18 barrels.
59/(40+5x)=18/(2x-40)=y.
so x=110 cost of each barrel...
and y=10 rate for each barrel...
wud anybdy make me understand if i am wrong then where is my fault!!

Sourav Dutta   64y = 40+5x ....(i)
20y = 2x-40....(ii)

solve this.... then x == barrel cost & y == Duty Cost..
