Hi, please help solve the following question. tx
Seems like the anwer given is wrong.

(9) Alicia had some beads. She gave Bernice half of the beads and 2 more. Then she gave half of the remaining beads and 3 more to Cindy. If Alicia had 9 bead after this, how many beads had Alicia at first?

The answer is 52. Add 9 to 3, multiply by 2, add the answer to 2 and multiply by two again.

If you know how to use the Branching method, it will be very clear.
