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
