Luke and Mike have some □.

Luke has 5 fewer □ than $${3 \over 8}$$of the total number of □.

Miko has 25 □.

How many □ do they have altogether?

x = total numer of items

Luke has   3/8 x - 5      <==== this is given

the remainder will be    x -  ( 3/8 x -5)     and this equals Miko's 25

x - (3/8 x - 5 ) = 25

5/8x + 5 = 25

x = 32 total items
