    Let's call the number of books John has x. John has x books. Keven has 9x books. Steve has 4x.

    So add them up. x + 9x + 4x = 112. 14x = 112. 112/14 = x.

    112/14 = 8. So Kevin has 8 books.

    J is Johns amount

    9J would be Kevin’s

    4J is Steve

    J plus 9J plus 4J equals 112.

    solve for J and then you can get K.

    J + k + s = 112

    K = 9j

    S = 4j

    Just sub. 9j + 4j + j = 112

    14j = 112

    J = 8

    K = 9j = 9(8) = 72
