Javier:

64 - 28 = 36

Daniel gave Javier 36 stickers.

Daniel:

4/5x = 36

x = 36 / (4/5)

x = 36 * (5/4)

x = 180/4

x = 45

Daniel started with 45.

If Daniel gives Javier 4/5 of his stickers and Javier's collection increases by 64, Daniel gave him 64 stickers.

If 4/5 of Daniel's original stickers is 64:

4/5= 64 stickers

64/4= 16 so 1/5= 16

16•5= 80 so 5/5= 80

Daniel had 80 stickers in the beginning.
