Question #22477

In last week’s football game, Ralph scored 6 less than twice what Tommy scored. The sum of their scores is 30. How many points did Ralph and Tommy score individually?

Expert's answer

If Ralph has x scored goals, then Tommy has scored (2x-6)goals. Tommy and Ralph have scored 30 goals, that's why x+2x-6=30 => 3x=36

=> x=12 - number of goals which Ralph scored, that's why Tommy has scored

30-12=18 goals.

Answer:

Ralph - 12 goals;

Tommy - 18 goals;

=> x=12 - number of goals which Ralph scored, that's why Tommy has scored

30-12=18 goals.

Answer:

Ralph - 12 goals;

Tommy - 18 goals;
