    Answer:

    number of red buttons = a

    number of yellow buttons = b

    according to question

    a + 1202 = b

    => a = b – 1202

    b – 5233 = 4a

    => b – 5233 = 4 (b – 1202)

       b = 4b – 4808 + 5233

       b =4b + 425

       3b + 425 = 0

       3b = -425

       b = -425/3
