so you work backwards. you take 46 and add 10 because it says "10 less than"

- anonymous

tell me about it

you get 56 .now since it says "twice the number" you do the opposite and divide 56 by 2. and voila

Let c = the number of charter schools.
Let a = the number of alternative schools.
c = 2*a - 10.
Number of charter schools is 46.
This makes our equation equal to:
46 = 2*a - 10
Add 10 to both sides of this equation to get:
56 = 2*a
Divide both sides of this equation by 2 to get:
a = 28
There are 28 alternative schools in the country.
