How do you solve this it's hard

When it rains, every student in Margo's school brings a raincoat, an umbrella, or both. And 10% of the students bring both. The total number of umbrellas brought is equal to twice the number of raincoats.

What percent of the students bring an umbrella only? Explain your solution in complete sentences.

*What percent of the students bring an umbrella only?*

Answer #1 contains a link to a thread that will help you get it wrong.

You can take CPhill's solutions to the bank. That problem uses 8% instead of 10, but Chris shows you __how__ to solve the problem.

64%

Step-by-step exaplanation:

64% of the kids only bring an umbrella. Set up a system of equations: suppose x% of kids only bring raincoats, and y% only bring umbrellas. Since 8% of kids bring both, 1-8%=92% bring only one of the two, so x+y=92. Percent of kids who bring raincoats is x+8, and percent of kids bringing umbrellas is y+8. y+8=2(x+8). Solve the two equations, we get x=28, y=64. 64% kids only bring umbrellas.
