Artut had some marbles. 1/4 of the marbles were blue, 3/12 of the marbles were red, and the rest were yellow. There were 14 more red marbles than yellow marbles. How many marbles did Ann have altogether?

Let's fix up this question first.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Arturo had some marbles. 1/4 of the marbles were blue, 3/12 of the marbles were red, and the rest were yellow. There were 14 more yellow marbles than red marbles. How many marbles did Arturo have altogether?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Now we can solve this problem.

       1       :        1         :        2

1/4 blue      3/12 red        yellow

     x      +       x       =        x + 14 

x = 14

Arturo had 56 marbles. smiley
