There are a total of 52 students on the soccer team and the field hockey team. The field hockey team has 12 more students that the soccer team. How many students are on each team?
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
