Julian collected 5 times as many stickers as Robert. When Julian gave Robert some of his stickers, they each had 9. How many stickers had Julian given to Robert?

j = 5r

j- s = r + s

5r-s = 9 s = 'some stickers'

r+s = 9 add these two equations

6r = 18

r = 3 then j = 5r = 15

r + s = 9

3 + s = 9

s = 6
