```										Let total Number of pearls be x
number of pearls lost = x/3
number of pearls missing = x/4
remaining = 20
==>  x = x/3 + x/4 + 20
==> x = (4x+3x)/12 + 20
==> x = (7x + 240) / 12
==> 12x = 7x + 240
==> 5x = 240
==> x = 240/5 = 48 !!

therefore total number of pearls originally is 48 !

```										I think answer is 40 As it is given that 1/3 is lost and  so remaining perl in string is 2/3 and of that ¼ is missing sowe have           x/3-2x/3*1/4=20now we have x/3-2x/12=20,x=40
