2-3x + x = 30, 2+2-3x + x = 30 +2,

4x/4 = 32/4, x=8, 8 blue & 22 pink. Did I set this up correctly and is answer correct?

**Steve**, Monday, August 19, 2013 at 6:48pmthe answer is correct, but your equation is wrong

3x-2 + x = 30

4x = 32

Take a look at your arithmetic. The equations don't add up.

**steve**, Monday, August 19, 2013 at 7:33pmso it should be 3x-2 + x = 30

3x-2+2+x = 30+2

3x+x = 32

4x = 32

4x/4 = 32/4

x=8
