Let  the  number of beads in Packet A   =  A

Let the number in Packet  B  = B

 

So  

 

A + B =  276        (1)

B + 36  = (4/9)A       ⇒    B = (4/9)A    -36

 

Sub (2)  inro (1)  for  B

 

A  + (4/9) A  - 36 =    276

 

(13/9) A  =  276 +  36

 

(13/9) A  =  312      multiply both sides by  ( 9/13)

 

A  = 312 ( 9/ 13)     =      216  in packet  A
