Foxes and rabbits. The ratio of foxes to rabbits in the
Deerfield Forest Preserve is 2 to 9. If there are 35 fewer
foxes than rabbits, then how many of each are there?

• Algebra -

let number of foxes be 2x
let number of rabbits be 9x

foxes = rabbits - 35

etc....

Thanks so much I can take it from there. I have problems converting a word problem to a math problem.
