    Answer:

    275

    Step-by-step explanation:

    t = total sold

    c = cheeseburgers   h = hamburgers

    c + h = t total is equal to cheeseburgers + hamburgers

    we know that

    c + h = 481

    and that c = h – 69

    so we can rewrite the first equation as

    (h-69) + h = 481  

    2h = 481 + 69

    2h = 550      h=550/2=275

    so there 275 hamburgers were sold
