I need help with this;

There are 100 floors on a building. 50 are painted red and 50 and painted blue. The number of red floors on the top half plus the number of blue floors on the bottom half are equal to 56. How many red floors are there on the top half?

    56 - 50 = 6

    kenny are you sure that you wrote the question down correctly if so then56-50 willnot work because if there is 6 on the top then there has to be 44 reds on the bottom. because on the top there is reda and blue
