Grandfather gathered apples into baskets. He filled one large and three small baskets. Small baskets are identical and each can hold 3 kg of apples less than in a large basket. In small baskets together 3 kg of apples over a large basket. How many kilograms of apples grandfather gathered?

x =  15 kg

### Step-by-step explanation:

x=v+3m
m = v-3
3m = 3+v

x=v+3•m
m = v-3
3•m = 3+v

3m+v-x = 0
m-v = -3
3m-v = 3

m = 3
v = 6
x = 15
