**Ms. Sue**, Thursday, August 18, 2011 at 6:10pmNo. 6 isn't the answer to either question.

Let x = the number of white buttons.

x + 3x = 36

**Ms. Sue**, Thursday, August 18, 2011 at 6:22pmLet's see. 3 times 12 = 36. That takes care of the red buttons. What about the white buttons?

**Ms. Sue**, Thursday, August 18, 2011 at 6:49pmOh, 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
