    Thank you very much for your solution. It is very helpful for our CA2 & SA2 Exams coming.
    Question from Tina:
    1/ Hanson had some one-dollars coins and some fifty-cent coins. The ratio of the number of one-dollar coins to the number of fifty-cent coins he had was 2: 5. Hanson took 140 fifty-cent coins to the bank and changed these fifty-cent for the same value of one-dollar coins. In the end, the number of one-dollar coins to the number of fifty-cent coins he had became 5:2. Find the value of the fifty-cent coins Hanson had at first.
