Shanice bought six boxes. A week later half of all her boxes were were destroyed in a fire. There are now only 15 boxes left. With how many did she start. YOU MUST SET UP THE EQUATION AND SOLVE IT!

    15 left after half were destroyed so double that. She bought 6 and it wants how many she started with so you subtract those 6.
