Answer:

Sue candy = 13 – x

Tony candy = 9 + 1/2x

Step-by-step explanation:

Sue candy = 18

Tony candy = 18

Let x = some candy gives to tony

Sue candy = 18 – x

Tony candy = 18 + x

sue then eats five of hers

Sue candy = 18 – x – 5

= 13 – x

tony eats half of his

Tony candy = 1/2(18 + x)

= 18/2 + x/2

= 9 + 1/2x

Expressions for the number of pieces candy sue and tony now have:

Sue candy = 13 – x

Tony candy = 9 + 1/2x
