Mr. Evans, Mrs Brooks and Mr. Soto are carpentersfrom Durham. They made 34 chairs all. Mr. Evans made 4 chairs than Mrs. Brooks. Mrs. Brooks and Mr. Soto made the same numbers of chairs. How many chairs did Mr. Evans make? a) 14 chairs b) 10 chairs c) 9 chairs d)7 chairs
Let x = # chairs for Brooks and Soto. If it is 4 more chairs for Evans = x + 4
34 = x + x + x + 4 = 3x + 4
3x = 30
Solve for x.
