Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0If you take the part, three more than six times the number, and break it down you can find the answer easier. 3 more is addition. Six times the number is 6*x. So you end up with adding 3 to 6x or 3+6x. Then you subtract that amount from the beginning amount because it says there are 15 marbles total and there are more red than white.
