Mechanical Pencils

Algebra Level pending

I only buy mechanical pencils at the beginning of the school year. The school year is 36 weeks long. If I lose one pencil every 2 weeks (to include the first and last weeks of the school year), but find one every 3 weeks, how many should I buy so that I finish the year with 5 pencils?
