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

x= 104/4

x= 26

So gary has 26 kazoos

and no. of kazoos calvin has =14+3x =14+3*26 = 14+78 = 92

Gary =26

calvin =92
