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

let number of clips be c and number of pin be p, then we have 

c-p= 21

c+p = 48+13 =61

add the two equations, we have 

2c = 21+61 = 82

c = 41

p = c-21 = 20 


Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
