**At first, the total number of sheep in Farm A and Farm B was 980. After 3/5 of the sheep in Farm A and 200 of the sheep in Farm B are sold, the ratio of the number of sheep in Farm A to Farm B becomes 1 : 4.a) Find the number of sheep in Farm B at first.b) Find the total number of sheep left in Farm A and Farm B.**

**Solution**

13 units ----- 980 – 200 = 780

1 unit ----- 780 divided by 13 = 60

a) Number of sheep in Farm B at first -----

8 units + 200 ----- (8 x 60) + 200 = 680

**Answer: There were 680 sheep in Farm B at first.**

b) Total number of sheep left in Farm A and Farm B -----

10 units ----- 10 x 60 = 600

**Answer: There were 600 sheep left in both farms.**
