S collected (2/3) of total # of items collected.;

S collected 3894 items.;

Therefore 3894 = (2/3)(total # items collected).;

ie., (total # items collected) = (3/2)(3894) = 3(1947) = 3(1950-3) = 5850-9 = 5841.

Let x be the total number of items collected.

⅔x = 3894

Multiply both sides by 3/2.

3/2 * ⅔x = 3/2 * 3894

x = 3 * 1947

x = 5841 items
