The ratio of Alan's apples to Don's apples was 3:5. When Alan gave 30 of his apples to Don, the ratio of Alan's apples to Don's apples became 1:5. Find the number of apples Alan had at first?

Don's apples = D

Alan's apples = A

D = A * 1.666

A - 30 = (D -30)/5

A = 54

D = 90

Alan had 54 apples at first
