**jai**, Tuesday, August 10, 2010 at 10:33pmfirst, represent them as variables:

let x = four-passenger cars

let y = six-passenger cars

set up the equations [since two unknowns, you must have two equations]:

(1) 4x+6y=92 ==> since 92 people altogether

(2) y=x-3 ==> since three less six-passenger cars

then you can substitute the equation (2) to (1):

4x+6(x-3)=92

4x+6x-18=92

10x=110

x=11 four-passenger cars

i hope i was able to help.. =)
