In a baseball season: Peter hit = 2 (x - 6) Total = 19 hits X= Alex’s hit Y = Peter’s Hit => Y = 2(x - 6) => x + y = 18 Let’s start from the second given equation: => x + y =18 => y = 18 – x Now, let’s use the first given equation to solve: => 18 – x = 2 (x - 6) => 18 – x = 2x – 12 => -3x = -30 x = 10 Now, Let’s try: => Y = 2(x - 6) => y = 2 (10 - 6) => y = 2 (4) => y = 8 Thus, Peter hit 8 and Alice hit 10.
