A mathematician works for \(t\) hours per day and solves \(p\) problems per hour, where \(t\) and \(p\) are positive integers and \(1 . 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?

 

Thanks for everyones help!!! I appreciate it so much.

1 < p < 20. doesn't work but ill spell it out just in case: 1 is less than p which is less than 20. I hope that makes sense
