    well you know that the number is going to be 2*48-4. Can you solve it from there?

    @kimbllse777 I think you got a little mixed up! So the question boils down to 2x -4 = 48. Do you know where to go from there, or shall I explain? :)

    so it says exactly "the number of charter schools is 4 less than twice the number of alternative schools. We know that there are 48 charter schools"

    4 less than 2 ^ alternative = charter

    so 4 - 2x = 48
