Use a system of equations to solve the following problem: Charles High School has a total of 94 boys and girls who play sports. If the number of boys is 22 more than twice the number of girls, how many boys play sports at this high school? 70 48 24 80
This requires you to turn the words and sentences into an equation. Use variable names for boys and girls - call B and G. Total boys + girls = 94. B + G = 94 B = 22 + 2G Solve.
It is basically a set of two equations in two variables at that point and you should be able to solve the two equations and find the value of B.
