Let g=number of apples Mr Goh has, and let h=number of apples Mr Ho has. How long will it take Mr Ho to sell all his apples? (It will be an expression involving h) You can use this time to write down an expression for the number of apples Mr Goh sells in this time. Now you can write down an equation about Mr Goh's apples: he's sold this many and has 400 left. So now you have an equation that involves g and h. You can use the second half of the information in the question to construct another equation, also involving g and h. Then all you have to do is solve these simple simultaneous equations. If you don't follow this - get in touch and I'll help you construct the equations.
