i have 95 beads. 20 more red than blue.two times as manywhite beads than red beads. how many blue beads do i have?

  • statistics -

    Let x = # of red beads, then x-20 = # blue and 2x = # white.

    x + (x-20) +2x = 95

    4x = 115

    x = 28.75

    Something is wrong. If your data is correct, it should not give you a fraction. Do you have any typos?
