## Answers ( No )

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! 🙂
