text book = 50 + (2 x Z)

let Z= workbook

textbook + workbook = 230 pages

[50+(2Z)] + Z = 230

50 + 3Z =230

3Z= 180

z= 60

Text book = 50 + 2Z

text book = 50 + 2(60)

Text book = 170

REMEMBER:

50 more, really means "plus 50" in an equation

2 time the number of pages a work book, really mean "2Z" where Z = work book
