Alex and Benjamin were each given some stickers. Alex had four times as many stickers as Benjamin. After Alex gave away 203 stickers and Benjamin gave away 26 stickers, Benjamin had three times as many stickers left as Alex. How many more stickers did Alex have than Benjamin at first?

Initially:

a = 4b

3(a-203) = (b-26)

3 ( 4b-203) = b - 26

b = 53 then a = 4b = 212 < ====finish from here
