The coal

The coal stock would be enough to heat a larger room for 12 weeks, a smaller one for 18 weeks. It was heated for four weeks in both rooms, then only in a smaller one. How long was the coal stock enough?

Correct result:

x =  12


z=12a z=18b z4a4b=b x  z4(z/12)4 (z/18)=(z/18) (x4)   14 (1/12)4 (1/18)=1/18 (x4)  2x=24  x=12z=12a \ \\ z=18b \ \\ z - 4a -4b=b \cdot \ x \ \\ \ \\ z - 4(z/12)-4 \cdot \ (z/18)=(z/18) \cdot \ (x-4) \ \\ \ \\ \ \\ 1 - 4 \cdot \ (1/12) - 4 \cdot \ (1/18)=1/18 \cdot \ (x-4) \ \\ \ \\ 2x=24 \ \\ \ \\ x=12
