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

Rosa had 21 hair clips more than pins. 

If she gave away 13 pins, and she had 48 in total. Then we can represent this as a equation. 

let t = total

let p= pins

let c = hair clips.

t- 21 = p 

t - 13 = 48

So we have to find the total which is 

t = 61

Which means that there are 40 pins in total. We subtract 13 and we get 27


27 is the answer
