At Newfield HS, the sophomore class has 60 more students that the freshman class. The junior class has 50 fewer students than twice the students in the freshman class. The senior class is threww times as large as the freshman class. If there are a total of 1,424 students at NHS, how many students are in the freshman class?
Let x = the # of freshman
Let x+60 = the # of sophomores
Let 2x-50 = the # of juniors
Let 3x = the # of seniors
Total students: 1,424
Your equation would be:
Now add all x terms and all integers.
I'll let you finish it.
Since x=freshmen, the x value will be the number of freshmen at NHS.
