word problem: Mimi's market sold 24 heads of lettuce one morning. That afternoon 2/7 of the remaining heads of lettuce were sold. The number of heads left was now 1/2 of the number the market had at the beginning of the day. How many heads of lettuce were there at the beginning of the day?

    let x = # beginning heads

    x - 24 - 2/7(x-24) = x/2
