Answer:

(i) 5 books

(ii) 7 books

(iii) x/3 books

Step-by-step explanation:

let the number of books Mai has be x , then since Tyler has 3 times as many books as Mai, Tyler will be having 3x books.

(i) If Tyler has 15 books , the Mai will have 15/ 3 books

Therefore , Mai has 5 books

(ii) If Tyler has 21 books , Mai will have 21/3 books

Therefore:

Mai has 7 books

(ii) if Tyler has x books , then Mai will have x/3 books

Therefore :

Mai has x/3 books

15 books Mai has 5

21 Books Mai has 7
