I'm a little unsure about this one. Are these the correct equations?

Equation #1: 2x + 1y = 60

Equation #2: x + y = z+9

The second equation I am especially unsure of. What is the correct equation, or am I correct. I am assuming that z is the number of games they tied.

**Reiny**, Tuesday, February 10, 2009 at 5:11pmAs I stated in one of my other replies to you, it is very important that you define your variables.

let the number of wins be x

let the number of ties be y

"They won 9 more games than they tied" ---> x = y + 9 or x - y = 9

Your other equation is correct.
