Kensi and Kyle go grocery shopping together. On the way back home, while struggling with her bags, Kensi says "Hey, if you gave me a bag, I would hold twice as much as you carry. But if I gave you one of mine, we would be carrying the same amount!" How many bags is Kyle carrying?

k +1  = 2(y-1)

k-1   = y+1                          k = kensi   y = k y le

 

from second equation:

k = y+2         sub into first eqaution   

 

y+2   +1  = 2y- 2

y = 5                                     (then k=7)
