In a used car lot, there are 3 times as many red cars as green cars. If tomorrow 12 green cars are sold and 3 red cars are added, then there will be 6 times as many red cars as green cars. How many green cars are currently in the lot?

Currently: R = 3G;

Tomorrow: R + 3 = 6*(G - 12) --> 3G + 3 = 6*(G - 12) --> G = 25.

Hope it's clear.
