Two buses came to the National Mall. The first bus had 45 tourists from Georgia, and the second bus had 45 tourists from Maine. The buses had no free seats. A sudden thunderstorm made all the tourists rush to the buses without paying attention which bus is each. All 90 tourists got inside. A question: were there more Georgia tourists in the bus which originally had only tourists from Maine, or more tourists from Maine in the bus which originally had only tourists from Georgia?
