Daniel has 7 more stamps than Sherry. Together, they have 101 stamps.

How many stamps does Daniel have?

2. Relevant equations

let x equal how many stamps daniel has

x - 7 + x = 101

2 x = 108

x = 54

101 - 54 = 47

3. The attempt at a solution

Now, we can easily solve this w/ some algebraic equations, but how can we do this without any algebra, or just at an elementary school understanding of math?
