Michelle made some bookmarks for fundraising day. She made 1/6 of the bookmarks on the first day and 48 bookmarks on the second day. The number of bookmarks that she made on the second day was 1/5 more than the number of bookmarks she made on the first day. How many bookmarks did Michelle make for the fundraising day?

Hello RunningMan!

$$\dfrac{x}{16}(1 +\frac{1}{5})= 48\\ \dfrac{x\cdot 6}{16\cdot 5}=48$$

$$x=640$$

640 bookmarks did Michelle make for the fundraising day.
