A minor league plays 101 games,

They win 14 more than twice as many as they lost.

How many wins and loses?

Okay, simple.

First, write a simple addition equation. In this case wins = w and losses = l.

l + w = 101.

Now, we have to figure out a way to make one of the terms the same term as the other, in this case we can change the terms of w to l.

l = l

w = 2l +14 (14 more than twice the amount)

Okay. So plug in the new amount for w.

l + 2l + 14 = 101. Great! we now have a simple equation. lets solve.

put similar terms together.

3l + 14 = 101

3l = 87

l = 29

So, we have 29 loses, and

w = 2(29) + 14

72 wins!

To check,

72 + 29 = 101, correct!

Hope this helps!
