a minor league baseball team plays 88 games in a season . if the team won 17 more then twice as many games as they lost , how many wins and losses did the team have

X = Games lost
(2X + 17) = Games won.
X + ( 2X +17 ) = 88
Solve for x:
X = 23.7 = 24 Games lost
2X + 17 = 2(24) + 17 = 65 Games won.
Maybe the number of games played
should be 89. check it out.
