Bobby's Bike Shack orders tires each week for its two-wheel bikes and three-wheel bikes. They order tires for all 47 of their bikes this week. If they ordered 112 tires, how many two-wheel bikes does the Bike Shack have?

 

For this question, I am required to show my work so please explain your answer.

x = number of two wheel bikes

 

2x = bike tires for two wheelers

 

47 - x  = three wheel bikes

3(47-x) = tires for three wheelers

 

2x + 3 (47-x) = 112        solve for x (the number of two wheel bikes)
