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?

    x is the hamburgers and y is your total

    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

    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
