    let x be the number of boys then x + 17 be the number of girls. x+x+17=431 2x=431-17 2x=414 x=207, this is the number of boys but, the question is the number of girls so, use x+17=207+17 is equal to 227. So, there are 227 girls and 207 boys in 8th grade class.

    Let x be the money of Ramon and (1/2)x be the money of Bob. x+(1/2)x=$225 (3/2)x=$225 3x=2($225) 3x=$450 x=$150, this is the money of Ramon so, Bob's money will be (1/2 of 150) which is $75. Therefore, Bob has $75 while Ramon has $150.

    Let x be the age of Contra Costa College x+18 and 2 1/2 x is the age of Solano College x+18=2 1/2 x x-2 1/2x=-18 x-(5/2x)=-18 (-3/2)x=-18 x=-18/(-3/2) x=36/3 x=12, this is the age of the Costra Costa then, x+18=the age of Solano x=12 12+18=30, this is the age of Solano Therefore, the age of Contra is 12 years while Solano is 30 years old
