98-67=31 so, 31/91 are mountian bikes

in english that means this:

you have 97 bikes

67 are mountain bikes,yes?

you want to figure out how many are not mountain bikes, right?

you simply subtract 67(# of moutain bikes) from 98(total # of bikes)...

that will tellyou how many bikes are left

the number of bikes left are mountain bikes
