If Jack gives 10 of his stickers to Sharif, Sharif will have 1/4 as many stickers as Jack. If Jack gives 34 of his stickers to Sharif, Sharif will have 1/2 as many stickers as Jack. How many stickers does Jack have?

Initially :    1/4 (j-10) = s+10     or   s = 1/4j  -12.5

 

 

 

Then    1/2 ( j-34) = s+34          sub in the RED equation above for 's'   then solve for j
