If 4(x+y) (x-y) = 40 and x-y=20, what is the value of x+y?
I don't know, but Deiton emailed me the answer "0.5" and asked you to check it out.

A small company has some free movie tickets to distribute to its employees. If each employee gets 5 tickets, there will be 15 left over. If 5 employees will receive 7 tickets, and none will be left over. How many tickets does the company have?

Whew dude that one was rough, can you get the big Deit to help me.
Deiton emailed me that this second problem is an ill-formed problem with no solution.
