actually it is 275 because it says that there were 51 MORE cheese sold than hamburgers so first you take away 51 from 601= 550 the you divide 550 by 2 which is 225 for the hamburgers and for the cheese you add 225 + 51 = 276 and 276+225=501

I believe nathalie0928 made a math error H = Hamburger CB = Cheeseburger TOTAL = the number of burgers sold = 601 51 more CB were sold than H Two unknowns so you need two equations! 1) H + CB = 601 2) CB - H = 51 Add these equations and H will be eliminated. 3) 2CB = 652 Divide both sides by 2 4) CB = 326 It is easy to solve H by modifying eq 2)
