John has 9 times as many toys as Jacob. If John gives 12 toys to Jacob, the two children will have exactly the same amount. How many toys do they have altogether?

Let x = Jacob
John has 9x 

9x - 12 = x + 12

8x = 24

x = 3

 

This means Jacob has 3 toys and John has 3 x 9 = 27 toys.

3 + 27 = 30 toys altogether
