**Reiny**, Friday, February 1, 2013 at 10:23pmat the start:

Joline ---- x stickers

Steph ----- x+24

Steph gave 1/2 of hers to Joline

Joline now has ---- x + (x+24)/2= (3x+24)/2

Step now has --- (x+24)/2

now joline give half of what she has to Steph

Joline now has ---- (3x+24)/4

Steph now has ---- (x+24)/2 + (3x+24)/4 = (5x+72)/4

now Step has 40 more than Joline

(5x+72)/4 = (3x+24)/4+ 40

times 4

5x + 72 = 3x + 24 + 160

2x = 112

x = 56

at the end Steph has (5x+72)/4 or (5(56)+72)/4 or 88 stickers

let's check this:

at the start:

Joline had x or 56 stickers

Steph had x+24 or 80

steph gave half of hers or 40 to Joline, so

Joline now has 96

Steph has 40

finally joline gives half or 48 to steph

so Joline has 48 and

Steph has 40+48 = 88

YEAHHH
