Let x = Connie's votes Let y = Carl's votes We know that y + 53 = x We also know y + x = 221 We can substitute x into the bottom equation: y + (y + 53) = 221 2y + 53 = 221 2y = 168 y = 84 Therefore, Carl has 84 votes. Connie has 53 more than that, so 84 + 53 = 137. Connie has 137 votes and Carl has 84 votes.
