Q:
# lindsey and menon have 1,240 stickers. menon has 4 times as many stickers as lindsey. menon decides to have 6 stickers on each page of an album. how many stickers does menon have?

Accepted Solution

A:

L = Lindsey

M = Menon

L + 4L = 1240

5L = 1240

L = 248 (that's how many stickers Lindsey has)

M = 4 *248 (4 times as many as Lindsey)

M= 992

PS. I think Menon deciding to use 6 stickers on each page of an album is irrelevant here.

M = Menon

L + 4L = 1240

5L = 1240

L = 248 (that's how many stickers Lindsey has)

M = 4 *248 (4 times as many as Lindsey)

M= 992
