Puzzle ZNXG 


My local library decided to hand out some of its old books to the 1,400 people who lived in the town.

To each library member, they offered 6 books, and to each non-member, they offered 4 books.

If only half of the members, and three-quarters of the non-members, accepted the books, how many books were given away?

As we don't know how of the people were library members, you can try a random number and see what happens.
