oh pellet I read the question wrong.
Let x be the number of female.
no of male = 2x +20
x +(2x+20) =140
Can you solve it from here?
A lil confusing :\ im not sure on how to sovle it
First let x be the number of female
Since 'number of males is 20 more than twice the number of females'
number of male = 20 + 2x
Understand this part?
Sorry I have to go.. so i leave you some explanations here for the answer..
Then, from 'has a total of 140 males and females who are employed at the park'
you know no. of male + no of female = 140
So (2x+20) + x =140
Then solve for x
After that, find the no of male by putting the value of x into 2x+20
Is it 100?
Steps for solving x :
(2x+20) + x =140
2x + x +20 = 140
x = 120 /3
And yes, your answer should be correct
