    x = number of answers
    y = number of incorrect answers
    3 x - y = 18
    x + y = 10
    add the two equations and solve for x

    check your answer

    Step by step is what I meant.

  • math - , Tuesday, April 9, 2013 at 3:42pm

    (3x - y) + (x + y) = 18 + 10

    4 x = 28

    x = ?
