Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1@haley_mememe I guess it would be: x = number of sections. times = multiplication more than = addition Friend one: "I have finished 3 times as many sections as you" 3 times x = 3*x = n friend two: "you've only finished 4 more sections than I have" n+4 How many sections have you "and" your friend completed and = the total sections completed which means sum. total sections. 3x+4
