2nd grade math word problem.

So in this problem there are 30 total games between your team and team x. So to solve this problem we will set the number of games your team played = m and the other team won m - 12 since your team won 12 more. Adding both of these up, will give you the 30 games played. So,

m + m - 12 = 30

Add the m terms together

2m - 12 = 30

Add 12 to each side

2m = 42

Divide by 2

m = 21

So your team won 21 games and the other team x won 9
