Question

The tigers scored 56 more points than the cubs. The cubs scored 211 more points than the Eagles. The tigers scored 478 points. How many points did the Eagles score?

## Answers ( )

Answer:The Eagles scored 211 points

Step-by-step explanation:we are going to represent what the problem tells us as equations so as not to get confused

t = tiger score

c = cubs score

e = eagles score

t = c + 56

c = e + 211

t = 478

we replace the value of t with 478

t = c + 56

478 = c + 56

478 – 56 = c

422 = c

we replace the value of c with 422

c = e + 211

422 = e + 211

422 – 211 = e

211 = e

The Eagles scored 211 points
