Amelia and Elliott are collecting empty soda cans for recycling. Amelia has 13 less than 5 times the cans that Elliott has. Together, they have 257 cans. A + E = 257 ; E =x ; A = 5x - 13 ; 5x - 13 + x = 257; 6x = 257 + 13 ; 6x = 270 ; x = 270/6 = 45 ; E = 45 ; A = 5 * 45 - 13 = 212. Elliott has 45 cans, Amelia has 212 cans.
