Answer:if im correct i think 37 try it

Step-by-step explanation: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.
