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.
