Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0We set up a system of equations B=W+5 (5 more in Brown than White) 2(B10)=W+10 (move 10 from B to W and W has twice what B has) Now plug B5=W into the second equation and solve for B. 2(B10)=B+5 B=25. W=20 so we can check B10=15, W+10=30. 15*2=30. So we are correct.
