    To solve this problem we first call x = number of action figures, y = number of dolles. A system of two equations with two unknowns must be made to describe the problem. The system is the following:

    (x + 1) + y = 13

    1/2 * x = y.

    Then solving the system we have that x = 8 and y = 4.

    Since we know that the number of action figures is twice as many dolls plus one, then x = 8 + 1 = 9.

    Thus,

    dollos = 4

    action figures = 9
