1. Let b = the number of action figures Jane gives to one of the boys.

Then, we are stating that:
990 + b = 4 * (135 + b)
990 + b = 540 + 4 * b <- Distribution
450 + b = 4 * b <- Both sides subtract 540
450 = 3 * b <- Subtract b from both sides
150 = b <- Divide both sides by 3

This means that Jane gave Sam and Louis each 150 action figures.

This means that the total number of action figures Jane has left is:
570 - 150 - 150 = ?
