Money giveaway (Posted on 2020-10-26) Difficulty: 3 of 5
Eve and Martti have a whole number of euros.

Martti said to Eve: "If you give me three euros, so I have n times the money compared to you."
Eve in turn said to Martti: "If you give me n euros then I have triple the amount of money compared to you".

Suppose, that both claims are valid. What values can a positive integer n get?
