A minor league baseball team plays 104 games in a season. If the team won 16 more than 3 times as many games as they lost, how many wins and losses did the team have?
Let's call the number of losses x and the number of wins 3x+16. Assuming there are no ties, x+3x+16= 104 games so 4x+16= 104 and we solve for x.
After solving for x we get 22 losses and 82 wins.
Hope it helps!
