\(\frac{Nw}{Ow}\)=3=> Nw= 3Ow

After the swap
Nw-28= Ow+28
=>3 Ow-28= Ow+28
=>2Ow= 56
=>Ow= 28
Nw=3ow= 28*3= 84

Total coins originally = 84+28=112

Old Ratio (New Coins:Old Coins) : 3:1
Total Coins = 3n + n = 4n

New Ratio: 1:1
New Arrange: (3n-28 / n+28) = (1/1)

Cross Multiply:
3n-28=n+28
2n = 56
n = 28

So, 4n = 112
