Judy and Ramey together have 42 stuffed animals. Judy has 12 fewer animals than Ramey. How many stuffed animals does each girl have?
I know that the answer is Ramey has 27 and Judy has 12 but I don't know how to write the equation for solving it. I figured out the answer by randomly picking numbers til it worked. Can you help me?

R + (R  12) = 42

I think Erik meant to say that Judy had 15, not 12. Then, it solves that 27+ (2712)=42, right?
My SIL just called asking us this same question...must be at the same place in the book!

How did you come up with 27? I'm I missing something?
