Ben had 1/5 as many books as Jann. After Jann gave Ben 4 books, Ben had 1/3 as many books as Jann. How many books did Jann have in the end?

Jann had 30 books in the end

1/5x+4=1/3x

x=30

Jann had 30 books in the begining not at the end, i think.

 

So if Jann had 30 books in the begining that means you have to subtract 4 from 30 and that is 26.

 

Jann had 36 books in the end?

 

Sorry if its incorrect (I'm not that smart)~Hannah
