...how many stickers does Nicole have?

Nicole and Tasha have 2000 stickers altogether. If Nicole has 600 more stickers than Tasha, how many stickers does Nicole have?

1300!

To show my work:

N + T = 2000 // together they both have 2000 stickers
T = N - 600 // Tasha has 600 less stickers than Nicole

N + (N - 600) = 2000  // substituting in
N + N - 600 = 2000
2N - 600 = 2000
2N = 2600  // I added 600 to both sides
N = 1300

Great shown work, @tim. :slight_smile:

When presented to teach that I realized I hadn’t used these principles for years, and need to freshen up.

Clover was very impressed, and I let them know @tim studied a lot of math in school, including college, to which they replied…

You can always count on Tim, when they are around the numbers really add up!
