Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0for 1st equation, when farmer B give 10 of his sheeps to A, he will have less 10 sheeps and A have twice of his new amount. thats why A+10= 2(B10). u understand this one?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0for 2nd equation. they will have equal if A give 10 of his sheeps to B. so B hav additional 10sheeps and A hav less 10sheep. thats why: B+10 = A10

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0from (2); AB=1 > A=1+B (3) substitute (3) into (1) yields; (1+B)+B =10 > B=(101)/2 = 4.50
