    Let’s write T for Teagan’s score and E for Emma’s score.
    Also, let’s write an equation

    E = 2T + 4
    E = 3
    2T + 4 = 3
    subtract 4 from both sides
    2T = -1
    divide both sides by 2
    T = -1/2

    To see of this is correct:
    2T + 4 = 3
    2(-1/2) + 4 =?= 3
    -1 + 4 =?= 3
    3 = 3

    Hope this helps
