Let the number of cities visited by the rock band be x.
The jazz band visited 95 cities more than the rock band.
So, the number of cities visited by the jazz band = x + 95
Total number of cities visited = 179
x + (x + 95) = 179
x + x + 95 = 179
2x + 95 = 179
2x = 179 - 95
2x = 84
x = 84/2
x = 42
So, number of cities visited by the rock band = x = 42
Number of cities visited by the jazz band = x + 95 = 42 + 95 = 137
