The cost of a textbook is directly proportional to the number of math problems it contains, and inversely proportional to the number of authors who wrote the book. A textbook which contains 200 problems, and was written by 3 authors costs $5 less than a textbook which contains 150 problems, and was written by 2 authors. What is the cost of a textbook containing 450 problems, and written by 4 authors?
Three children share a box of candy between them. Linda gets three times as many peppermints as Shannon, who gets 5 more licorice sticks than Yvette. Yvette gets three times as many licorice sticks as Linda, and half as many peppermints as Linda and Shannon combined. If Shannon got two more licorice sticks than peppermints, and there are 98 candies in all, how many peppermints were there?
