Paul was able to jump rope 35 more times than Daniella. If Paul jumped 123 times, how many times did Daniella jump rope?

My sol: Let x = # times Daniella jump rope. Then Paul is: x+35

Sol: (x+35)+ x = 123 (?)

It doesn't seem quite right. I love math, but sometimes don't grasp the concepts of the problems. Please help me with a thought pattern on this one.

It seems too simple
123-35=x
x=88
