if josh gives Emily 7 apples, she will have 5 times as many apples as Josh. If Emily gives Josh 7 apples, they will have the same number of apples. How many apples does each currently have?

  • Math -

    5(j-7) = e+7
    e-7 = j+7

    j=14
    e=28

    check:
    josh-7 = 14-7 = 7 * 5 = 35 = 28+7
    emily-7 = 28-7 = 21 = 14+7
