1. X is the score of the losing team...
x+ 27= winning team

Eguation:
winning score+losing score=total points scored
x+(x+27)=41

Solve:
x+(x+27)=41 combine x's...
2x+27=41 subtract 27 from both sides...
2x=14 get rid of the coefficient (divide by 2)
x=7

Conclusion:
The losing team scored 7 points (x=7).
As said previously the winning score is the losing score plus 27. (x+27)
7+27=34
Losing team= 7
Winning Team= 34
CHOICE B
