e + 4e = 270

e = 54   then   p = 216        to have equal cards they would each have 135 (because total is 270)  so  e  needs to get  81 cards from p

Let Eric collected 'x' cards

Paul collected 4x cards

Total = x + 4x = 5x = 270

=> x = 270/5 = 53

So Eric had '54 cards and Paul has 54 * 4 cards
