    This 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 = 15-y 36 = 2x+3y (36 scoops, 2 scoops per double girl, 3 scoops per triple girl) 36 = 2(15-y)+3y (by substituting 15-y for x) 36 = 30-2y+3y 36 = 30+y y = 6
