    9 more than four times jenny's number if we call jenny''s number \(n\) then that would be \(4n+9\) to go in the inside parentheses

    in other words, the top line would look like \[3(4n+9)-2\]

    normally it is a bad idea to give out direct answer, but frankly (not to boast) if it takes me ten minutes to understand the wording, lets call it a gift

    last step is to multiply out and combine like terms to get the bottom answers

    Let R = robbie's number J = jenny's number K = kylie's number W = willie's number we know that Jenny made 'n' her number "Robbie picked a number that is nine more than four times Jennie's number" means that R = 4n+9 ---------------- For Willie, it says "Willie picked a number that is two less than three times Robbie's number" telling us W = 3R - 2 From here you replace the R with 4n+9 because the two are equivalent, so you should have 3(4n+9) - 2
