Tom, Sally, Joe and Carl have a stamp collections. Tom has 36 stamps. That is fewer than what Sally has in her collection. Tom has 2 more stamps than Joe. Carl has the same number of stamps as Sally. How many stamps does each has? How many stamps do they have altogether?



Tom has 36 stamps. Then it says Tom has fewer stamps than Sally, so it means Sally has 37 stamps. Carl has the same stamps as Sally, then it also means Carl has 37 stamps. Tom has 2 more stamps than Joe, it means Joe has 34 stamps. So, 36+37+37+34=144 stamps----this is the answer.
