Let s= Samaria, c= candy, and t= Sydney
Samara has 6 more than 3 times pieces of candy as Sydney.
s=6+3c
Samaria has 36 pieces of candy.
36=6+3c
Solve the equation.
Subtract 6 from both sides.
30=3c
Divide by 3
c=10
Sydney has 10 pieces of candy.

Hello there.
Question: Samaria has 6 more than three times as many pieces of candy as Sydney. Samaria has 36 pieces of candy. How many does Sydney have?
Answer: C is candy
Samaria = 3c + 6
36 = 3c + 6.
Subtract 6 from both sides:
36 - 6 = 30
30 = 3c.
Divide both sides by 3:
30/3 = 10
Sydney has 10 pieces of candy.
Hope This Helps You!
Good Luck Studying ^-^
