u = 7

If u need a non algebraic answer.
Imagine handing out 3 muffins to all of your friends.
Now that u want each of them to have 4 instead, you just have to pass one muffin to each of them now. That will be using the 5 muffins that you have left. But you realise u need another 2 means there were 2 people you weren't able to pass it to.
5+2 = 7 people
With that you can find the number of muffins.
7 × 3 + 5 = 26
