  1. This looks like a math problem. If Jefferson is your school subject, I fail to see what math has to do with the third president. If you need a math tutor, you might say so in the School Subject box.

  2. L = T+6
    F = 2(L+T)
    F = 32

    2(L+T) = 32
    2(L+L-6) = 32
    2L-6=16
    L=11
