Can someone help on the following questions with clear explanation? Thank you.

Q1) May, Susan, Ben and Joey, each have some stickers. May has 50% as many stickers as the total number of stickers that Susan, Ben and Joey have. The number of stickers that Susan has is 25% of the total number of stickers that May, Ben and Joey has. The number of stickers that Ben has is 2/3 of the total number of stickers that May, Susan and Joey has. If May gives 20 stickers to Susan, May and Susan will then have an equal number of stickers. Find the average number of stickers each of them has.
