**5/7**of the cookies were butter cookies and the rest were green tea cookies. She gave away

**3/4**of the butter cookies and

**1/4**of the green tea cookies. After she ate 9 green tea cookies, she had an equal number of butter cookies and green tea cookies left. How many cookies did Meiling bake?

My work:

Number of butter cookies = B

Number of Green Tea cookies = G

Number of total cookies = T (not sure about this one)

We know there are

**2/7**G of the total cookies because

**5/7**B

Then I did

**3/4**B =

**1/4**G - 9.

I tried different ways, but I couldn't find a correct way to do it.
