  • Math -

    Bonnie has b stickers
    after giving away 1/6 of them she has 5/6b left.
    She then gets 12 more, now she has (5/6)b + 12

    (5/6)b + 12 = 47
    (5/6)b = 35
    b = 42

    check:
    she had 42, gave 1/6 or 7 away, leaving her with 35
    she then gets 12 more , resulting in 47
