a minor league baseball team plays 88 games in a season . if the team won 17 more then twice as many games as they lost , how many wins and losses did the team have

  • math - ,

    X = Games lost
    (2X + 17) = Games won.
    X + ( 2X +17 ) = 88
    Solve for x:
    X = 23.7 = 24 Games lost
    2X + 17 = 2(24) + 17 = 65 Games won.

    Maybe the number of games played
    should be 89. check it out.
