Ethan and Theo are getting ready for a friendly water balloon fight when Theo protests "Wait, it's not fair, you have three times as many balloons as I do!" Ethan, being a good sport, hands Theo ten more balloons. "It's still not fair" Theo says, "you still have twice as many balloons as I do!"

How many more balloons must Ethan give Theo so that each of them have the same number?
Do you have a suggestion for this puzzle (e.g. something that should be mentioned/clarified in the question or solution, bug, typo, etc.)?
