Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0This can be modeled by simultaneous equations. Let x = number of girls with double scoops, y = number of girls with triple scoops. x+y=15 (because 15 girls total) x = 15y 36 = 2x+3y (36 scoops, 2 scoops per double girl, 3 scoops per triple girl) 36 = 2(15y)+3y (by substituting 15y for x) 36 = 302y+3y 36 = 30+y y = 6
