Cathy and Judy bought some postcard packets.altogether there were 48 cards.Cathy bought three packets with 8 cards each.The packets Judy bought had 12 cardsin each.how many packets did Judy buy.

Cathy bought 24 cards. That leaves 24 cards for Judy. 24/12 = 2

X = cards Cathy bought
Y = cards Judy bought
X + Y = 48
If Cathy only bought three packets of 8, X = 24
So that means Y = 24, and Cathy bought 24 also. How many packets of 12 is that?
