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

The answer is 20

let number of baseball cards = b

let number of football cards = f

Allison has 5 times as many baseball cards as football cards. Therefore:

f = 5 x b ---> (1)

total cards is 120

f + b = 120 ---> (2)

substitute (1) in (2):

5b + b = 120

6b = 120

b = 120/6 = 20

therefore, the answer is 20



Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
