Suggestion From Mathematical Talk!

**What was the talk?**
**L**et'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.
