    Solution:

    we are given that

    The president of the science club brought 134 juice boxes to take on a field trip.

    Each person on the trip received 3 juice boxes and there were 20 extra juice boxes.

    we have been asked to find how many people went on the field trip?

    Let there were x people on the trip then we can write

    134=3x+20\\ \\ 3x=134-20\\ \\ 3x=114\\ \\ x=38\\

    Hence 38 people went on the field trip.
