At the Natural History museum Paula saw 5 times as many beetles as spiders. She saw 6 more spiders than caterpillars. If Paula saw 50 insects and spiders, how many of each kind did she see?

two house spiders caught 14 flies in theirrespective webs over a week's time. the larger spider caught 2 more flies than the smaller spider.

S+5s+s-6=50 S+5s+s=56 7s=56 S=8 So Paula saw 8 spiders, 40 beetles, and 2 caterpillars
