Candies

If Alena give Lenka 3 candy will still have 1 more candy. If Lenka give Alena 1 candy Alena will hame twice more than Lenka. How many candies have each of them?

Result

a =  17
l =  10

Solution:


a-3 = l+3+1
2(l-1) = a+1

a-l = 7
a-2l = -3

a = 17
l = 10

Calculated by our linear equations calculator.
