Paula saw 6 yellow birds and x blue birds while bird watching. James saw twice as many birds as Paula did. James saw 26 birds. Write an equation to find how many blue birds Paula saw while bird watching

My answer is 2x(26-6) is this correct?

• Math -

26/2=13=number of birds paula saw

13=6+x
13-6=x
7=x

so paula saw 7 blue birds

• Math -

6+x=13
13-6=x
7=x
