Solution:
Q1: There were 6 tables

First they painted all tables and 5 chairs. The second day they painted 7 chairs and no tables. So from this the number of chairs are 7 + 5 = 12 Hence the number of tables = total - number of chairs = 18 - 12 = 6 ( Answer )

Q1: 6 tables

6 tables is the answer. There are 5 painted chairs and 7 unpainted chairs. I know that there are 5+7=12 chairs. Total tables and chairs are 18. So 18 takeaway 12 is 6. 6 tables.
