An algebra book weighs 6oz less than twice as much as a grammer book. if 5 algebra books weigh the same as 8 grammer books, how much does an algebra book weigh?Answer by robertb(4012)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!a = 2g-6, 5a = 8g. Then, by substitution, 5(2g-6) = 8g, 10g-30 = 8g, 10g-8g = 30, 2g = 30, g = 15. A grammar book weighs 15 ounces, an algebra book, 2*15 - 6 = 24 ounces.
