also we can say that after offering flowers at second temple he should be left with x/2 flowers.

similarly after offering flowers at first temple he should be left with (3x/2)/2 flowers.

Thus he should be carrying (x + 3x/4)/2 flowers initially, i.e. 7x/8 flowers initially.

For number of flowers to be integer, x =8, thus he must carry 7 flowers initially and offer 8 flowers at each temple.
