Let Devi have x no. of cards

Hence Anne has x+24 cards

By the problem,

(3/5)(x)=(1/2)(24+x)

=>(3/5)x=12+(x/2)

=>(1/10)x=12

=>x=120

Hence Anne has 120+24=144 cards

Hence Anne has x+24 cards

By the problem,

(3/5)(x)=(1/2)(24+x)

=>(3/5)x=12+(x/2)

=>(1/10)x=12

=>x=120

Hence Anne has 120+24=144 cards
