There are 97 students in South High School.  South High School offers only Chinese and Spanish.  There are 5 more students in Chinese than in Spanish, and every student takes at least one language.  If  \(43\) students take only Spanish, then how many take both languages?

6 students take both languages. 43+48+n=97 and this simplifies to n=97-91 or n=6.
