Question:

A car salesman sold 33 cars on Saturday. If the salesman sold twice as many convertibles as he did sedans that day, how many sedans did he sell on Saturday?

A 11 sedans
Explaination

Let x represent\u00A0the number of sedans the salesman sold and set up an equation. Since he sold twice as many convertibles as sedans, the number of convertibles can be represented by 2x. The total number of convertibles and sedans he sold is 33. Therefore, 2x + x = 33 Solve the equation. 2x + x = 33 3x = 33 x = 11
