how would you solve this problem? I'm getting stuck on how I would put it together ; On Tuesday, a local hamburger shop sold a combined total of hamburgers and cheeseburgers. The number of cheeseburgers sold was two times the number of hamburgers sold. How many hamburgers were sold on Tuesday?

right thanks but I'm not 100% sure on how you go from there, like if you divide the "2x" with the 240, you get 12 and end up with the equation x+y=120

would that be the answer or something?

what are the numbers?

check the problem, the total between both hamburgers and cheeseburgers is 240, but the cheeseburgers were sold twice as much then the hamburgers.

so 2x+x = 3x so 3x=240
anonymous
  • anonymous

anonymous

anonymous
  • anonymous
so 2x+x=y right??
anonymous
  • anonymous
