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
