mrs. cooper's class has 11 more girls than boys. there are 35 students in all. how many girls are there?

  • math - sum and difference -

    Sum and difference problems can be readily solved without algebra by the following:

    bigger number = (sum+difference)/2
    smaller number = (sum - difference)/2

    Example, since there are more girls than boys, so
    number of girls = (35+11)/2 = 23
    number of boys = (35-11)/2 = 12
