The Beatles have 9 number one albums than Elvis, together they have a total of 29 albums. How many albums does each of them have

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

Let x = number of albums that Elvis has

Then Beatles have x + 9 (9 more than Elvis)

Now adding these two we get x + x + 9 = 2x + 9

But we are given that this total is 29

So 2x + 9 = 29

Subtract 9 from both sides

2x + 9 -9 = 29 - 9

2x = 20

Divide both sides by 2

2x ÷ 2 = 20 ÷ 2

x = 10

Elvis has 10 number one albums

Beatles have 10 + 9 = 19 number one albums

(note that the total is 10 + 19 =29)
