Suggestion From Mathematical Talk!


What was the talk?

Let's assume C be the number of boxes that camel is carrying and H be that being carried by horse.

As per first part of camel's statement i.e. if you gave me one of your boxes I would have double what you have  

C + 1 = 2 (H - 1) 

C + 1 = 2H -2

C = 2H - 3 ........(1)

Now in second part (i.e.if I give you one of my boxes we two would have an even load) of camel's statement suggests,

C - 1 = H + 1 


C = H + 2 


Putting (1) in above,

2H - 3 = H + 2

H = 5

Again putting this value in (1) gives,

C = 2*5 - 3 = 10 - 3 = 7 

C = 7. 

Horse is carrying 5 boxes and the camel is carrying 7 boxes.
