Jack has 30 sweets. He shares his sweets with his friend. When he gives his friend a sweet, he has 2 for
himself. How many sweets do they each have?

They need to recognise it as a ratio.
1:2 or 2:1 = 3 parts in total.

Edit to add: I'm fairly sure ratios like this are national curriculum. They are covered in the schofield book 4.
