X = Number of original tables
Y = Number of new tables
Capacity of original tables = 4
Capacity of new tables = 6
Total number of tables = X + Y = 40.....(1)
Total capacity = 4X + 6Y = 220.......(2)
(2) - 4*(1) --> 2Y = 60 --> Y = 30, X = 10

How many more new tables than original tables does the restaurant have? --> Y - X = 30 - 10 = 20

Hi Bunuel,

I believe that the above prompt has been incorrectly attributed to the wrong company. It's actually a Kaplan question:
