Answer to Question #6630 in Algebra for Dana

Question #6630
Two minor league baseball players got a total of 222 hits. Washington had 14 more hits than Sanchez. Find the number of hits for each player.
Expert's answer
Let’s denote number of hits of player Washingtonby x. Then the second player had y=x-14hits
Due to the question statement togetherplayers had 222 hits so x+y=222
So we have two equations for x and y:
x+y=222
y=x-14
Substituting expresson for y (secondequation) into the first equation we get
X+y=x+x-14=222
Hence 2x=222+14=236
X=118 – number of Washington’s hits
Number of hits for Sanchez y=x-4=118-4=114
Answer: 118, 114
