Vick and Hassan were playing a logic game. Vick had 2 points for every 1 points Hassan had. When Hassan scored 36 more points, he then had twice as many points as Vick. How many points did Vick have?

Call the number of points  that  Hassan originally had, H

Call the number of points  that Vick  originally had = 2H

 

Assuming  the Vick scored  no more points, we  have  that

 

H + 36  =  2  (2H)     simplify

 

H + 36  =  4H

 

36  =  4H - H

 

36  = 3H

 

36 / 3   = H    = 12

 

Vick had  2(12)  =  24  points originally
