Hue is arranging chairs.She can form 6 rows of a given length with 3 chairs left over, or 8 rows of that same length if she gets 11 more chairs . write and solve an equation to find how many chairs are in that row length.

She starts with 6 rows of 'x' chairs with 3 remainder     6x + 3   chairs       if she adds 11 more   (6x+3) + 11   she can get 8 rows of 'x' chairs   8x

so:      (6x+3) + 11 = 8x   solve for 'x'   the number of chairs in each row

6x + 14 = 8x

14 = 2x

x = 7    is the number of chairs in each row
