Equations L1

In a box of marbles, there are three less white marbles than the red ones and five more white marbles than the green ones. If there are a total of 10 white marbles, how many marbles are there in the box?

  1. 28
  2. 36
  3. 26
  4. 32

Answer

Number of white marbles = 10

Number of red marbles = 10 + 3 = 13

Number of green marbles = 10 - 5 = 5

Total marbles = 10 + 13 + 5 = 28

The correct option is A.
