Player A hit twice the difference of the number of home runs that player b hit and 6. altogether they hit 18 homes runs. How many runs did each player hit.

Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

here the equations are,

a=2(b-6) and

a+b=18

therefore,

2(b-6)+b=18

2b-12+b=18

3b=30

b=10

a=18-10=8

a=8 and b=10
