There are some caps in a shop. 2/9 of the caps are red, 1/3 of the caps are yellow and the rest are blue. There are 436 more blue caps than red caps. How many caps are there in the shop?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

All caps => **x**

Red caps => **2x/9**

Yellow caps => **x/3 **or **3x/9**

Blue caps => x - 5x/9 = **4x/9**

Caps in the shop => 2x/9 = 4x/9 - 436 **x = 1962**
