deshawn and Luke had an equal number of stickers. After deshawn used 26 stickers and Luke lost 38 stickers. deshawn had twice as many stickers as Luke. how many stickers did each of them have in the beginning ?

  • math - ,

    let x = initial number of stickers
    then set up the equation:
    x-26 = 2(x-38)
    x - 26 = 2x - 76
    -x = -76 + 26
    -x = -50
    x = 50 stickers

    hope this helps~ :)
