    Question:

    In a class of (4y + y – 8) students, 2y + 16 play

    football and the rest play basketball. How many

    play basketball ?

    (a) 4y2 + 3y – 24 (b) 4y2 – y – 24

    (c) 4y2-y + 8

    (d) 4y2 – y + 24

    Answer:

    We need to subtract (2y + 16) from (4y + y – 8)

    (4y + y - 8) - (2y + 16)

    5y - 8 - 2y - 16

    5y - 2y - 16 - 8

    3y - 24

    No of students playing basketball are 3y-24
