1)MR Yusoff had some pencils, erasers and rulers. The ratio of the number of pencils to the number of erasers was 5:1. After giving away 16 erasers, the ratio of the number of rulers to the number of erasers was 4:1. Mr Yusoff bought another 184 rulers. As a result, there were an equal number of pencils and rulers. How many erasers did he have at first?

2)Mrs Ravi baked 350 tarts. 3/5 of the tarts were lemon tarts and the rest were apple tarts. She sold an equal number of lemon and apple tarts and had 6 times as many lemon tarts as apple tarts left. How many apple tarts did she sell?
