And also can someone show me how to solve it step by step?? <3
the way id do it...make an equation for the sentence "Joe has 1/4 of the number that Bob+Suzy have."
call joe j and suzy x
and in total they have 35 cards so
now we have two equations

j is solved for in the first equation so we can take that and plug it into the second one for j
now can you solve for x?
yes I can solve :)
is 19 + 1/4 = 19 1/4? @CalebBeavers
okay I don't get it?
The 1/4 is being multiplied, distribute it into the parentheses
so 19/1 * 1/4
Multiply straight across 19/4
and also multiply it by the x so we have
Now just combine like terms and isolate x
/Ok Let B = Bob, J = Joe and S = Suzy
B = 19
S = x
J = (1/4) (x+19)
Together they have 35:
19+x+(1/4)(x+19) = 35
19 + x + x/4 + 19/4 = 35 and solve for x :) :
5x/4 + 95/4 = 35
5x/4 = 35 - 95/4
5x/4 = 45/4
5x = 45
x = 9
Then just substitute the value for x for each person: we get that x= 9
So S = x = 9
