hockey teams receive 2 points whey they win and 1 point whey they tie. one season, a team won a championship with 51 points. they won 9 more games than they tied. how many wins and how many ties did the team have?
how many wins did the team have?____
how many ties did the team have?_____

I don't believe in answering question from students that begin sentences with a lower case letter. However, I'll help this time. A word to the wise?
Let w = wins
and t = ties
w+t=51
w=t+9
Two equations and two unknowns. Solve for w and t.
