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?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0right 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
