    let the number of sheep owned by first sheep herder as A and the 2nd one is B. first sheepherder need another 10sheeps to hav twice of the second have.so the equation will be: A+10=2B now the second sheepherder need 10 more sheep to hav equal number.it can be written as: A+10=B u know how to solve the equations to get the answer?

    sorry: for second equation, it should be B+10=A. NOT A+10=B

    the equations should be: 1) A+10= 2(B-10) 2) B+10= A-10

    for 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(B-10). u understand this one?

    for 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 = A-10

    equations u should have: 1) A+B=10 2) A-B=1

    from (2); A-B=1 ---> A=1+B (3) substitute (3) into (1) yields; (1+B)+B =10 ---> B=(10-1)/2 = 4.50
