W + L = 78 L + 8 + L = 78 Keep going to find L

im so confused
What do you get when you solve for L?
i dont get what you did
i wrote let w= the games won let l= the games lost w+l=79
thats all i get...
They played 78 games, not 79
So W + L = 78
L + 8 + L = 78 2L + 8 = 78 2L + 8-8 = 78-8 2L = 70 what's next?
where does the l+8+l+8 come from? thats the only thing i dont get
L + 8 + L = 78
I have W + L = 78
Replace W with L + 8 (since W = L + 8) to get L + L + 8 = 78
oh okay i got it so the anwer is 35 games lost
thanks so much
35 is the correct answer
