I need help with word problems that require MAAD Table

Suppose that one slice of Grandma's mincemeat pie has as many calories as six ounces of turkey and a candied yam. Suppose that a candied yam has six calories more than four ounces of turkey. Suppose that a slice of mincemeat pie and nine ounces of turkey has 994 calories. How many calories would then be in one candied yam?

I know that we are looking for how many calories are in one yam, X = calories in one yam

__x___|_____|_____

______|_____|____

994 | |
