OK! One more so I can go to bed already! The attendance at the Saturday night baseball game was three times the attendance at Sunday's game. In all, 56,000 fans attended the games. How many fans were at each game?

    Right. So A=Saturday and U=Sunday Equation: U*3=A

    Yes. Now if the total attendance for both nights was 56000. What is the equation that represents this fact?

    U+A=56000

    Yep. Now take what you know about A and substitute it out in that equation.

    Ok. This is where Im stuck! All I know is that A is 3 times U.

    Right. So if A = 3U then doesn't A + U = 3U + U ?

    O M G ! I think I got it! It just clicked! So my equation would be 3U+U=4U I then take 4U and divide it by the total 56000 I get 14,000. U=14,000 fans. RIGHT?

    i would then take the 14000 and subtract that by the total 56000 and get the answer for A. A=42000 Is this it?

    Alternatively you could have multiplied U by 3 to get A.
