Does it count if I know of someone who's missing a few marbles ?
J + M = 32
J = 3M
4M = 32
M = 8
Mark has 8 Marbles, John has 24
Of course you didn't NEED algebra for this, I was just showing off :)
If you have the means, change. If not, rough it until you can.
Are you sure you're indefinitely stuck at a lousy hotel that you really don't like?
Are you sure you haven't died and aren't now living in a horrible afterlife?
