x = games won

y = games lost

Write two equations:

x + y = 96

x = 2y

Substitute the second equation into the first equation:

2y + y = 96

3y = 96

3y/3 = 96/3

y = 32

Solve for x. Put y value in either equation:

x = 2(32)

x = 64

Ratio of win : lost = 2 : 1 = 2x : x

2x+x = 96

3x = 96

x = 32

won = 2x = 64

lost = x = 32
