Joyce and Kaylene had some stickers. The number of stickers Joyce had was 4/5 of what Kaylene had. Joyce then gave 5/8 of her stickers to Kaylene. As a result, Kaylene had 108 more stickers than Joyce. How many stickers did Joyce have at first?

Initially j = 4/5 k or k = 5/4 j

Then

j - 5/8j + 108 = k + 5/8 j sub in red equation

3/8 j + 108 = 5/4j + 5/8 j

108 = 12/8 j

j = 72
