    Answer:

    Tom kept 20 portugals for himself.

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Let “n” be the number of portugals Tom kept for himself, then…

    # of portugals which he gave to Ryan = n – 5

    # of portugals which he gave to Neil = Ryan’s portugals – 3 = (n – 5) – 3 = n – 8

    Now, we know that…

    Tom’s  portugals + Ryan’s  portugals + Neil’s  portugals = 47

    Now substatute the values and get…

    n + (n – 5) + (n – 8) = 47

    n + n – 5 + n – 8 = 47

    3n – 13 = 47

    3n = 47 + 13

    3n = 60

    n = 20

    Therefore Tom kept 20 portugals for himself.
