Balls - Double or Equal?

Glenn and Jason each have a collection of cricket balls. Glenn said that if Jason would give him 2 of his balls they would have an equal number; but, if Glenn would give Jason 2 of his balls, Jason would have 2 times as many balls as Glenn. How many balls does Jason have?

SOLUTION : Let number of balls with Glenn are x and with Jason are y.

We can make equations : x+2 = y-2 ; 2(x-2) = y+2

Solving them, we get y =14
