On January 1, 1984 there were 548 more commercial television stations than educational stations in the United States. There were 831 commercial television stations. How many television stations were there in 1984?

I think the answer is 1114 stations. Is that correct?

yes

831 commercial stations and

283 educational stations

is 831-283 = 548 ? YES

is 831 + 283 = 1114 ?

Thanks
