Of the bundles delivered daily to the store, 1/3 consists of the morning edition of The Daily Sun. Another 2 bundles are made up of the afternoon edition of the same paper. Of the remaining bundles, 1/2 is regional, one is a local newspaper, and one is from another state. How many bundles are delivered daily to the bookstore?

If there are x bundles,

x/3 are morning

2 = afternoon

That leaves 2x/3 - 2, of which

x/3 - 1 are regional

1 is local

1 is out of state

Add them up to get

x/3 + 2 + x/3 - 1 + 1 + 1 = x

2x/3 +3 = x

3 = x/3

x = 9
