    x= # tickets Tom sold
    3x+16= # tickets Steve sold

    Add the amounts Tom and Steve sold and that will equal 104 total tickets sold.

    x+(3x+16)=104
    4x+16=104
    Subtract both sides by 16
    4x=88
    Divide both sides by 4
    x=22 # tickets Tom sold

    Substitute the x=22 answer to find Steve’s tickets sold
    3x+16= 3(22)+16= 82 # tickets Steve sold

    Hope this helps! 🙂
