I would subtract 8, then divide by 2.
System of equations would help
Tony and Belinda have a combined age of 56
This means that they both add up to be 56
t + b = 56
Belinda is 8 more than twice Tony’s age
Tip: when you see 'is' it usually means =
b = 8+ 2t
Now there is a system of equations:
Solve for both by using either elimination or substitution

no they showed me how to do it but i really need someone to show me the work and answer which i know isnt right but i need help with this cause i have a meeting with a teacher in 5 min and i could go over it before they call
Ok do you know how to solve b = 2t and t + b = 56?
* sorry, 8 +2t= b
Substitute 8 + 2t for the second equation, where b is supposed to be.
t + 8 + 2t = 56
Solve for t
