In a particular country there are two political parties, the Red Party and the Blue Party. Prior to
last week's General Election the Red Party had 2½ times as many representatives in the
parliament as the Blue Party. The Red Party's lead has been reduced by 56 as a result of the
General Election, but it now has 1½ times as many representatives as the Blue Party.
How many seats are there in the parliament?
