Select the equation that most accurately depicts the word problem. 

A class of 19 pupils has five more girls than boys. Let n = the number of boys.

 

n + (n + 19) = 5

n + (n + 5) = 19

n - (n + 5) = 19

n + (n - 19) = 5

Since the number of boys =n

The number of girls =n + 5. So the equation would be:

n + (n + 5) =19
