Question

# A drummer and guitarist each wrote songs for their band. The guitarist wrote 8 fewer than twice the number of songs that the drummer wrote. They wrote a total of 46 songs. Which system of equations models this situation if the drummer wrote d songs and the guitarist wrote g songs?

- g=2d-8
g+d=46
- g=8-2d
g=46-d
- d=2g-8
d=46-g
- d=8-2g
d+g=46

## The correct answer is: g=2d-8

g+d=46

### Number of songs written by guitaris =g

Number of songs written by drummer =d

Twice the number of songs the drummer wrote = 2d

According to question, The guitarist wrote 8 fewer than twice the number of songs that the drummer wrote

g=2d-8

And, They wrote a total of 46 songs

g+d=46

### The school that Stefan goes to is selling tickets to a choral performance. On the first day of ticket sales the school sold 3 senior citizen tickets and 1 child ticket for a total of $38. The school took in $52 on the second day by selling 3 senior citizen tickets and 2 child tickets. Which system of equations can be used to determine s, the number of senior citizen tickets sold and c, the number of children tickets sold?

So here we used the concept of system of equations in two variable. Here in the question the variable quantity was 2 so two variables are there. So the system of equations are: 3s + 1c = 38, 3s + 2c = 52
