Rodney sold twice as many cars as Greg. In April, Rodney sold 5 fewer cars than he did in March, whereas Greg sold 3 more cars than he did in March. If they sold the same number of cars in April, how many cars did each sell in March?

**Damon**, Tuesday, October 14, 2008 at 8:23pmGreg in march = x

Rod in March = 2x

Rod in April = 2x-5

Greg in April = x + 3

so

2x - 5 = x + 3

x = 8

2x = 16
