The Teaser

Glenn and Jason each have a collection of cricket balls. Glenn said that if Jason would give him 4 of his balls they would have an equal number; but, if Glenn would give Jason 4 of his balls, Jason would have 3 times as many balls as Glenn. How many balls does Jason have?

 

The Solution

Jason has 20 balls and Glenn has 12 balls. If Jason would give Glenn 4 balls, they would have an equal number [i.e., 16 balls each]. If Glenn would give Jason 4 balls, then Jason would have 24 balls and Glenn would have 8 balls. Thus, Jason would have 3 times as many balls as Glenn.
