A mathematician works for t hours per day and solves p problems per hour, where t and p are positive integers and 1

<20. One day, the mathematician drinks some coffee and discovers that he can now solve 3p+7 problems per hour. In fact, he only works for t-4 hours that day, but he still solves twice as many problems as he would in a normal day. How many problems does he solve the day he drinks coffee?
