52 students total

   soccer has   'x' students   and  f has   x+12  students  ( f has 12 more than s    <------ given in the equation)

       they sum to 52

 

x       +    x+12     = 52     solve for 'x' <--- the number of soccer students     then f = x + 12    the number of field hockey students
