Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

Let the number of round tables be x.

There are twice the number of square tables as of round tables. 

So, the number of square tables = 2x


There are 4 chairs at the square tables and 6 at the round tables.

So, total number of chairs at the square tables = 4*2x = 8x

Total number of chairs at the round table = 6x
