a student playing a computer chess game gets 5 points every time he wins a round.the computer gets 3 points every time it wins a round.they play 64 rounds and end with a tied score.how many rounds did the computer win.

please help me ..
i think the answer is 8 because...
5+3=8
64/8=8
3*8=24
5*8=40
40+24=64
i don't know if that's the answer

  • math -

    let the number of your wins be x
    then the number of computer wins is 64-x

    5x = 3(64-x)
    5x = 192 - 3x
    8x = 192
    x = 24

    students wins 24 games, computer wins 40 games

    test:
    5x24 = 120
    3x40 = 120
