ok this is in my practice book. there are 33 students in the chess club. there are five more boys than girls in the club. write and solve a system of equations to find the number of boys and girls in the chess club?

  • math -

    B+G=33
    B-5=G

    or
    B+G=33
    B-G=5

    then solve. I would solve by adding the equations, or
    2B=38 then solve.

  • math -

    x + x + 5 = 33

    2x = 33 - 5

    2x = 28

    x = 14

    Proof:

    14 + 19 = 33
