1. A bowl contains both red and green marbles. How many green marbles are in the bowl?

1) If a marble is randomly selected from the bowl, the probability that a green marble will be selected is 1/3.
2) If one green marble is removed from the bowl and then a marble is selected at random from those remaining in the bowl, the probability that a green marble will be selected is 1/5.
----------------
2. There is a linear relationship between variable r and variable s. When r has a value of 6, s has a value of 30. When r has a value of 24, s has a value of 60. What is the value of r that corresponds to a value of s of 100?
----------------
3. If n is a positive integers, what is the largest value of n such that 2n is a factor of 20!?

I have solved the first one and got the answer Green balls = 2 and Red =4

Is their any rule to solve the second problem? How to build the equation for that?

r: 6, 24 (6+3x6) = change 18
s: 30, 60 (30 + 3x10) = change 30

if s = 30 + (7x10) = 100, r = 6 + (7x6) = 48

A. C. No of marbles are 2

S1. This means there are x green marbles and a total of 3x marbles
INSUFF
S2. Alone INSUFF

S1andS2. Gives us the equation (x-1)/(3x-1) = 1/5
Solve to get x=2
