Q1. Divide 64 into two parts so that the difference bettween 2/3 of one part and 1/4 of the other is equal to 28. What is the value of the larger part?

i hv did a little bit on tis qn... but i m stuck or isit i m wrong...
my working: let the larger no. be x.
let the smalelr no. be 64/x.
2/3x - 1/4(64/x) = 28
2/3x - 64/4x = 28
8x/12 - 192/12x = 28
i m stuck here...
