 Set $A$ consists of disjoint subsets $a_1, a_2, ..., a_n$. Although we do not know the cardinality of set $A$ (denoted by $|A|$) and the cardinality of each of the subset, we do know the proportion of each subset in terms of set $A$, that is we know $\frac{|a_1|}{|A|},​ \frac{|a_2|}{|A|},​ ... \frac{|a_n|}{|A|}$. We are allowed to add $n$ elements into subset $a_1$, and observe its change in proportionality. What is the cardinality of set $A$ before elements were added to $a_1$? Set $A$ consists of disjoint subsets $a_1, a_2, ..., a_n$.
