Here’s a tough maths puzzle for you all! Three points to whoever can solve it!

Mr Cheater, Miss Griffiths and Miss McLindon went strawberry collecting and picked 65 strawberries between them. At the first plant they each picked the same amount of strawberries. At the second plant they each collected three times the amount that they had collected at the first plant. After picking from the third plant they had five times the amount they had after picking strawberries from the first two plants. At the fourth plant they collected only five strawberries altogether. How many strawberries did each person collect at the first bush?

Mr Cheater has lots of pets. He has four more goldfish than he has turtles. He has one less canary than goldfish. Six of his pets are birds (canaries and parrots). He has two parrots. How many pets does Mr Cheater have?
