You have two jars of Red and Blue marbles labelled as RM and BM.
If you move one marble from RM to BM, the number of marbles in BM will become twice the number of marbles in RM.
If you move one marble from BM to RM, the number of marbles in both the jars will become equal.

With the above statements we can get 2 equations as follows;
BM + 1 = 2 x (RM -1) ……………(i)
BM – 1 = RM + 1 ……………….(ii)
Solving (i) & (ii) we get the following 2 equations;
2RM – BM = 3 …….(iii)
BM – RM = 2 ………(iv)
Adding both (iii) and (iv) we get;
2RM – BM + BM – RM = 3 + 2;
So RM = 5;
There fore from (ii);
BM – 1 = RM + 1 = 5 + 1
BM = 6 + 1;
BM = 7.
Answer is RM = 5 & BM = 7
