Joe multiplies a number by 4, adds 1, and then divides by 3, getting a result of 7. Sue divides the same original number by 3, adds 1, and multiplies by 4. What result does she get? Express your answer as a common fraction.

 

 

Please answer soon! Thank you!

Go backwards from her result of 7

   multiply by 3  =21

     subtract 2    = 20

        divide by 4  = 5   is the original number....now proceed with the steps in the second half of the question
