n represent the number of games lost, write an equation for:

a) A team won three times as many games as it lost. It played a total of 52 years.
b) A team won 20 games more than it lost. It played a total of 84 games.
c) A team won 15 games less than twice the number lost. It played a total of 78 games.

Thank you.

• equation -

Assuming "years" means "games," the first equation will be:

n + 3n = 52

With this solution, you should be able to generalize to provide the rremaining two equations.

I hope this helps. Thanks for asking.
