Jims dog buried 1/2 of his bones in Marks backyard. He buried 1/3 of his bones in Jeans backyard. He still had 4 bones left to bury.
how many bones did jims dog have in all.

is it 24/6?

Lets say he had 12 bones. Half gone (six), 4 in jeans, 2 left. Hmmm. That is one half of what Jims Dogs really had left.
So try starting with 24 bones. 
1/2 + 1/3 + 4=4.8 so round to 5 bones.
