Well, I have sort of. My lesson was pretty confusing. I wasn't entirely sure how to do it.

Elise and Miguel both collect baseball cards. Miguel has two more than two times as many cards as Elise. Together they have 971 cards. We have the information Miguel has two more than two times as many cards as Elise. Let Elise have x no. of cards then How many Miguel will have?

Yeah, it'd be \[2x+2\] Now we know that together they have 971 cards, so what's the equation now? Can you form it ?

2x + 2 + x = 971?

Now you can find the no. of cards each have, can't you?
