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

Megoldás. Az első alkalommal a dobókockák száma legyen $\displaystyle x$. Ekkor $\displaystyle 0,4x$ db piros és $\displaystyle 0,6x$ db zöld dobókocka volt a szakkörön. A másik alkalommal a pirosak száma $\displaystyle 0,1\cdot0,4x$-szel nőtt, a zöldeké pedig $\displaystyle 0,05\cdot0,6x$-szel csökkent. Vagyis $\displaystyle 0,4x + 0,04x + 0,6x – 0,03x = 1,01x$ lett a dobókockák száma, ami 1 %-os változást jelent.
