Ratio more red counters

There are some red counters and some yellow counters in a bag.
There are 30 yellow counters in the bag.
The ratio of the number of red counters to the number of yellow counters is 1:6
Riza puts some more red counters into the bag.
The ratio of the number of red counters to the number of yellow counters is now 1:2
How many red counters does Riza put into the bag?

I am unfamiliar with the word COUNTER in the sense of an object that is counted and capable of being place into a bag.
What does one of these counters look like?
