How many markers does Sheila have

Hi Kesia;

x+5x=18

6x=18

Let's divide both sides by 6...

6x/6=18/6

x=3

3 + 15 = 18

Dave's markers + Sheila's markers =18 markers

Dave has X markers, so Sheila has 5X markers.

Adding up all markers, X + 5X = 6X.

There are 18 markers, so 6X=18.

Dividing both sides of that equation by 6, we get X=3.

5X is 15.

So Dave has 3 markers and Sheila has 15 markers, for a total of 18 markers.
