At east end middle school, twice as many students study spanish as study latin. The spanish class has 3 fewer than 25 Students.
LET L REPRESENT THE NUMBER OF STUDENTS IN LATIN CLASS. USE THE GIVEN INFORMATION TO WRITE AN EQUATION TO FIND THE NUMBER OF STUDENTS IN THE LATIN CLASS.

Why make an equation to solve the obvious ?
it says, "The spanish class has 3 fewer than 25 Students. "
so there are 22 students in the Spanish class.
"twice as many students study spanish as study latin", so obviously 11 students study Latin.
