Bryan and Harold had 108 marbles altogether. Kaden gave away 1/2 as many marbles as what John gave away. The number of marbles John had left was the same as the number of marbles he had given away. If John had 1/2 as many marbles left as Kaden, how many marbles did John have at first?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

B + H = 108

B gave = 1/2x marbles

H gave = x marbles

H had left x marbles

B had left 2x marbles

1/2x + x + x + 2x = 108

x = 24

**Harold had 48 marbles **
