There are 52 pieces of fruit. There are 4 more bananas than apples. How many apples are there?
x = number of apples
x + 4 = number of bananas {there are 4 more bananas than apples} x + x + 4 = 52 {there are 52 pieces of fruit} 2x + 4 = 52 {combined like terms} 2x = 48 {subtracted 4 from each side} x = 24 {divided each side by 2} x + 4 = 28 {substituted 24, in for x, into x + 4} 24 apples 28 bananas Ask the House
