Best answer

Let's take the number of marbles given to Jack = x
Then, the marbles got by Emily will be 5 times that of Jack i.e. 5x
Then,
5x + 1x = 54
6x = 54
x = [latex] \frac{54}{6} [/latex]

x = 9

So, number of marble Jack got = x = 9
And number of marbles Emily got = 5x = 5 * 9 = 45

[latex]5x+x=54\\ 6x=54\\ x=9\\ 5x=5\cdot9=45\\ [/latex]

Emily - 45
Jack - 9
