**Reiny**, Thursday, October 15, 2009 at 11:22pmLet R be the number of reds

Let G ....

first equation: R + G = 62

second equation: (1/2)R + 2G = 88 or

R + 4G = 176 (I multiplied each term by 2)

so

R + 4G = 176

R + G = 62

subtract

3G = 114

G = 38

subbing that into the first,

R = 24

So 24 reds and 38 greens

check is 24+ 38 = 62 Yes!

is 12 + 76 = 88 ? Yes!
