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

First set up the equation

120 = b + c  where b= baseball cards and c= football cards

B= 5c

Then substitute: 120 = 5c+c

120 = 6c

C= 20

Then solve for b

B=5(20)

B=100

Then you can check the answer by adding the 100 baseball cards plus 20 football cards = 120 

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