*Jack has n balls, and Tom has n/2 + n/4 balls. If Tom would have 9 balls, how many would Jack have?*

n/2 + n/4 = 9 same denominator

2n/4 + n/4 = 9 sums up

3n/4 = 9 * 4

3n = 36 /3

n = 12

**So if Tom would've 9 balls, Jack would then have 12 balls.**

Tom has 9 balls

and also n/2 + n/4 balls

so n/2 + n/4 = 9

(2n + n)/4 = 9

2n + n = 36

3n = 36

n = 12

Jack has n balls

n = 12

12 balls
