Aaron's weight is 10 pounds greater than twice Levi's weight. If the sum of their weights is 118 pounds, how many more pounds is Aaron's weight than Levi's weight?

Sense the sum of the weight is 118, subtract 10 fron 118. 118-10= 108, so Aaron is 10 pounds more than Levi.

2L  +  10  =  A        (1)

 

L +  A  =    118      (2)

 

Sub ( 1)  into (2)

 

L  +  ( 2L + 10)  =  118

 

3L  + 10  =  118    subtract 10  from each side

 

3L   =  108          divide  both sides  by  3

 

L =  36  =  Levi's weight

 

A  = 2 (36)  + 10   =    82  = Aaron's weight

 

 

cool cool cool
