ok this is in my practice book. there are 33 students in the chess club. there are five more boys than girls in the club. write and solve a system of equations to find the number of boys and girls in the chess club?

B+G=33
B5=G
or
B+G=33
BG=5
then solve. I would solve by adding the equations, or
2B=38 then solve. 
x + x + 5 = 33
2x = 33  5
2x = 28
x = 14
Proof:
14 + 19 = 33
