    Ehh I just knew

  • 3rd grade math (not algebra!) - ,

    There is 10 blue bikes 6 green bikes and 2 yellow bikes

  • 3rd grade math (not algebra!) - ,

    from the information above:

    I blue = yellow + 4
    II yellow = green - 2
    OR yellow +2 = green

    and we know that
    III yellow + blue + green = 18

    now insert upper expressions into the III equation:

    yellow + (yellow +4) + (yellow +2) = 18

    3 yellow + 6 = 18

    --> yellow = 4

    insert 4 into upper equation and you will get
    blue= 4+4
    green= 4+2

    18 bikes in all. 4 more blue than yellow, 2 less yellow than green, how many green bikes are there?
