**Jug X contains 4 times as much syrup as Jug Y. Sam adds 500ml of syrup to Jug X and 2 450 ml to Jug Y. Now the two jugs have the same amount of syrup. What is the total amount of syrup in the jugs now?Solution**

3 units ----- 2450 – 500 = 1950

1 unit -----1950 divided by 3 = 650

Total ----- 5 units + 500 + 2450

= (5 x 650) + 500 + 2450

= 3250 + 500 + 2450

=

**6200**

**Answer: The total amount of syrup now is 6 200 ml**
