Balls

Michal said to Martin: give me one ball and I'll have twice as you. Martin said: give me 4 and we will have equally.

How many balls each have?

Result

x =  19
y =  11

Solution:

x=2 4+3+2 4=19x=2 \cdot \ 4+3 + 2 \cdot \ 4 = 19

x+1 = 2(y-1)
(x-4) = y+ 4

x-2y = -3
x-y = 8

x = 19
y = 11

Calculated by our linear equations calculator.
y=2 4+3=11y=2 \cdot \ 4+3 = 11



Our examples were largely sent or created by pupils and students themselves. Therefore, we would be pleased if you could send us any errors you found, spelling mistakes, or rephasing the example. Thank you!
