Chris has a bag of 59 M&Ms.

- There are 16 yellow M&Ms.
- There are 3x+4 green M&Ms.
- There are 2x-1 blue M&Ms.
How many green M&Ms are in the bag?

amount of green M&Ms=3x+4 how to solve for x: total M&Ms = sum of amount of M&M's per color.

 

59 = 16+3x+4+2x-1 = 19+5x

 

5x=40

 

x=8

 

3x+4=24+4=$\boxed{28}$
