1. Alright, so firstly, we are gonna start with the amount of multicolored bushes Jack has. He currently has 3 multicolored bushes. That’s 3 rosebushes off the list. If you read carefully, it says “he has the same number of yellow,red,and pink bushes, and 3 multicolored bushes”.

This is simple math.

So, if we do 4+4+4..it would turn out to 12. What’s the other number that will go into it to prove this calculation is correct? 3!

This number represents the amount of multicolored bushes there is. The total amount will come out to 15 rosebushes. So, it turns out to 4 because if the rosebushes are all the same number and the answer is 4, there is 4 rosebushes for each color.

So overall,

Jack has 4 yellow rosebushes.

4 yellow rosebushes

Step-by-step explanation:

Givens(What the question tells us):

m = 3(There are 3 multicolored bushes)

r + y + p = 15 – m( total red bushes plus total yellow bushes plus total pink bushes equals 15 – the amount of multicolored bushes)

r = y = p (total red bushes equals total yellow bushes which also equals total pink bushes)

Since we know m =3 we can substitute m for 3 in the second equation:

r + y + p = 15 – 3.

r + y + p = 12

Now since r, y, and p are equal we can divide the total amount left (12) by the 3 kinds of roses left to get our answer:

12/ 3 = 4 red, 4 yellow, and 4 pink

Since we are solving for the amount of yellow the answer is:

4 yellow rosebushes
