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?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Right. So if A = 3U then doesn't A + U = 3U + U ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0O 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?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i would then take the 14000 and subtract that by the total 56000 and get the answer for A. A=42000 Is this it?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Alternatively you could have multiplied U by 3 to get A.
