# 5th grade Math

posted by .

How do I solve this problem: At Carver Elementary, there are 355 students altogether. The School has 25 more female students than males. How many males and females does Carver have?

• 5th grade Math -

Let x = the number of male students.

x + x + 25 = 355

2x + 25 = 355
2x + 25 - 25 = 355-25
2x = 330
x = 330/2
x = 165

Proof: 165 + 190 = 355
