"Jim bought some chocolates and gave half of it to Ken. Ken bought some sweets and gave half of it to Jim. Jim ate 12 sweets and Ken ate 18 chocolates. The ratio of Jimâs sweets to chocolates became 1:7 and the ratio of Kenâs sweets to chocolates became 1:4. How many sweets did Ken buy?"

Yea, What the hell!? Are we running politically correct math classes now? At least make it shots of whiskey and beer. Dang, this place has gone to hell.

men giving each other candy, what they teaching these 12 yr olds? what's next men in tights wrestling with one another :eek: :eek: :eek:

The chances that both kids "bought" candy and chocolate are very slim. Statistically, at least one of them would have shoplifted their goods.
