I need help with a word problem. Stella's sock drawer contains 30 pairs of socks. There are 3 times less 2 the number of pink socks than blue socks. How many pairs of pink socks and blue socks does Stella have?
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?
