Sorry, the solution is available only in Hungarian. Google translation

Megoldás. Az első alkalommal készített derelyék száma legyen x. Ekkor 0,4x db lekvárost és 0,6x db túrósat készített. A másik alkalommal a lekvárosok száma \(\displaystyle 0,1 \cdot 0,4x\)-szel nőtt, a túrósoké pedig \(\displaystyle 0,05 \cdot 0,6x\)-szel csökkent. Vagyis \(\displaystyle 0,4x+0,04x+0,6x–0,03x=1,01x\) lett a derelyék száma, azaz 1%-kal növekedett.
