Joy buys some slices. I don't know how many. So I will let the unknown number be represented by the letter X

Joy buys X slices.

How many does Ansan buy (answer in terms of X)

Then work your way through the other purchases.

Make an equation then solve it.

Give it a go and show us your logic so we can help you more if you need it.

**To other answerers: Please let asker guest answer this.**

Not quite

Joy bought X

Ansen bught 2X

so far so good.

Kingley bought 3 less than 3 times as many slices as joy.

What is 3 times as many slices as Joy? what is 3 less than that?

Jacky bought twice the sum of what joy bought and 5.

This is badly worded but it means

But it means.

add 5 to what Joy bought, and THEN you double it. That is what Jacky gets.

The last one is similar.

NOW try again.
