7x+1 ?

GOOD!

is it 7x+1/2 ?

YAY!

this is where i am stuck, do i add them both together and them set it equal to 82?
i get stuck here

YAY!

would the equation look like this: 7x+1+7x+1/2=82

Where did the Adults go?

aren't they the x

yes, but they're not aliens... they're human.. better add them to the equation

haahaha i don't know where to put the x though

X+(1+7x)+(1+7x)/2

TA DA!

Can you solve for x given the other side is 82

|dw:1435958089976:dw|

ok lemme try solving that
i don't think idid it right, i got 7

lemme check.

YAY!

so i plug 7 into each individual equation?

YES!

ohh ok ok gotcha. thank you so much!!!!!!!

so the number of male students is 50, and female is 25

but that doesn't add up to 82, where did i go wrong here

You're treating adults as aliens again...

what do you mean?

50+25+7 humans

oohhh ok ok thank you!!! ....again ahaha
