Julia SAW 5 TIMES AS MANY CARS AS TRUCKS IN A PARKING LOT IF SHE SAW 30 CARS AND TRUCKS TOTAL HOW MANY WERE TRUCKS

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

Let the number of trucks be x, number of cars will be 5x, since total is 30

we have 5x+x = 30

6x = 30, dividing through by 6, we have, x = 30/6 = 5, so number of trucks is 5 trucks

whereas the number of cars is 5 by 5 = 25 cars

Thanks

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