"The Tigers won 8 games more than they lost" ----> W = L + 8

"the Tigers played 78 games (with no ties)" ----> W + L = 78

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

They played 78 games, not 79
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
So W + L = 78
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
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
anonymous
  • anonymous
L + 8 + L = 78
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
I have W + L = 78
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
Replace W with L + 8 (since W = L + 8) to get L + L + 8 = 78
