    X=lottie's aples

    give 1/4 of them to fred

    origianly had 4/4, but gave 1/4 away so now has (3/4) x

    eats 5 of them

    (3/4) x-5

    now she has 7 more than fred (fred has (1/4) x

    so

    (3/4) x-5 is 7 more than (1/4) x

    (3/4) x-5=7 + (1/4) x

    add 5 to both sides

    (3/4) x=12 + (1/4) x

    minus (1/4) x from both sides

    (2/4) x=12

    (1/2) x=12

    times 2/1 both sides

    2/2x=24

    x=24

    she had 24 to begin with
