Tommy had 192 stickers and Terrance had 116 stickers. When each one gave away the same number of stickers, Tommy then had 5 times as many stickers as Terrance. How many stickers did each friend give away?

I hope this is correct.

We use guess-and-check until we find out 95 is 5*19. So the answer is 192 - 95 = 97.

Tommy had 192 stickers

Terrance had 116 stickers

Assume that they have given 'x' number of stickers

Now, no. of stickers tommy had = 192 - x

         no. of stickers terrance had = 116 - x

        Given that Tommy, now have 5 times as many stickers as Terrance

            192 x - = 5 (116 - x)

            192 - x = 580 - 5x

            5x - x = 580 - 192

              4x = 388

                x = 97

Tommy and Terrance had 97 stickers.
