Alex and logan played a marble game. They both started with 10 marbles. After each game the loser gave the winner 1 marble. There were no ties. When they finished playing Alex had 14 marbles. If Logan won a total of 4 games, how many games did they play altogether

Logan's marbles at the end are only 6 marbles....becuase Alex has 14 of the original 20 marbles.

 

10 marbles      +   4 wins  X 1 marble/win    -   losses (1 marble/loss)  =  6 marbles

10                   + 4                                         -   losses                    =6

14    - losses = 6  

          losses = 8

 

 

he won four games and lost 8 games for a total of   12 games played    cheeky
