Two classes have a total of 50 students. One of the classes has 6 more students than the other. How many students are in the larger class.
Answer provided by our tutors
x = the number of students in the smaller class
y = the number of student in the larger class
Now we can write the following system of equations:
x + y = 50
y = x + 6
x = 22 students
y = 28 students
The larger class has 28 students.
