Calvin has 14 more kazoos than 3 times the amount of gary. All together they have 118 Kazoos. How many does each person have?
Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!
Let us assume
No. of kazoos Gary has =x
No. of kazoos calvin has = 14+3x
Total no. of kazoos = 118
Therefore x+14+3x = 118
14+4x = 118
4x = 118-14
4x = 104
So gary has 26 kazoos
and no. of kazoos calvin has =14+3x =14+3*26 = 14+78 = 92
