Daniel gave 4/5 of his stickers to Javier. Javier’s collection of stickers increased to 64. If Javier had 28 stickers in the beginning, how many stickers did Daniel have in the beinging?

can u please show the work and explain how u got it...so i could undersatnd thank you!!

  • math - ,

    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.

  • math - ,

    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.

  • math - ,

    64 - 28 = 36 sticker increase
    Let d = daniel's original sticker amount
    4/5 D = 36
    d = 45
