Question

# A survey asked a class of 30 students how many siblings they have. The number of students who have one sibling is 3 times the number of students, n, who have two or more siblings. If 6 students have no siblings, which of the following equations represents this situation?

## The correct answer is:

### Given the number of students who have two (or) more siblings is n. The number of students who have one sibling is 3 times the number of students who have two (or) more siblings = 3n

6 students has no siblings

Then total no. of students in class is = 6 + 3n + n = 30

⇒ 4n + 6 = 30 represents the situation.
