**Ms. Sue**, Monday, February 13, 2012 at 5:37pmAlex is wrong.

Let x = the number of girls

x + x + 16 = 92

2x + 16 = 92

2x = 92 + 16

2x = 108

x = 54

**Reiny**, Monday, February 13, 2012 at 6:02pmMs Sue probably meant to say

let x = the number of boys

then x+16 is the number of girls

x + x+16 = 92

2x = 92-16

2x=76

x = 38

the number of boys is 38

the number of girls is 54

check:

do they add up to 92 ? YES

are there 16 more girls than boys ? YES
