bill and anig both have baseball cards. aniq has four times as many cards as bill. the number of cards aniq has is equal to the number of cards that bill has plus 60. determine how many cards aniq has.

This becomes a direct translation of the "English" into math.

let the number of cards for Bill be x

then the number of cards for Aniq is 4x

now it said:

"the number of cards aniq has is equal to the number of cards that bill has plus 60"

so...

4x = x + 60

this is now easy to solve.

x= 20

i neeeeeeeeeeeed help !

it equals 64
