How many markers does Sheila have 10/8/2013 | Kesia from Newellton, LA | 2 Answers | -1 Votes Mark favorite Subscribe Comment
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 10/8/2013 | Vivian L. Comment
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. 10/8/2013 | Alan B. Comment
