There are some caps in a shop. 2/9 of the caps are red, 1/3 of the caps are yellow and the rest are blue. There are 436 more blue caps than red caps. How many caps are there in the shop?

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

All caps => x

Red caps => 2x/9

Yellow caps => x/3  or   3x/9

Blue caps =>  x - 5x/9 = 4x/9

Caps in the shop =>   2x/9 = 4x/9 - 436    x = 1962
