You were busy working on a problem using 4 big squares, 8 rectangles, and 8 small squares. Your partner accidentally knocked some algebra tiles off the your desk. You now have 1 big square, 3 rectangles, and 5 small squares on your desk.

Write and algebraic equation that shows what tiles you began with, what you partner knocked off the desk, and how many tiles you have left.
