There are 36 buttons in a jar. There are 3 times as many red buttons as white. 1. how many white buttons are there? 2. how many red buttons are there? My answer is 6,am i right?

    No. 6 isn't the answer to either question.

    Let x = the number of white buttons.

    x + 3x = 36

    Is it 12

    Let's see. 3 times 12 = 36. That takes care of the red buttons. What about the white buttons?

    w + 3w= 4w
    36/4 my answer 9 white, 9red

    Oh, my. When I went to school, 9 + 9 equaled 18.

    But your problem states there are three times as many red buttons as white buttons.

    How about?

    9 white buttons
    27 red buttons
