    This is fairly easy just use alittle more effort and someone will check your answer.

  • math - ,

    i = # incorrect (or otherwise) answers
    c = # correct answers
    ========================
    i + c = 50
    -1 + 2c = 76
    ================
    Solve the two equations simultaneously.
    Post your work if you get stuck.
