Please help with working solution.

Mr Lim had some stickers and stamps for his class. The number of stickers was half as many as the number of stamps. After each pupil in the class had received 3 stickers and 8 stamps from Mr Lim, he had 39 stickers and 2 stamps left. What was the total number of stickers and stamps Mr Lim had at first?


Thanks

stamps = 2u
stickers = 1u
total = 3u

No of students = 1p
3p + 39 = 1u -> 6p + 78 = 2u
8p + 2 = 2u

6p + 78 = 8p + 2

2p = 76
1p = 38
1u =38 * 3 + 39 = 153
Total = 153 * 3 = 459
hope this helps!
