Problem Solving Math Help

It is getting late and I'm trying to help a friend. I know I could figure out the answer, but my brain is froze. So, all my math peoples...

Case Eastern Junior College awarded 26 varsity letters in crew, 15 in swimming, and 16 in soccer. If awards went to 46 students and only 2 lettered in all sports, how many students lettered in two of the three sports?

Re: Problem Solving Math Help

26 + 15 + 16 = 57 total awards.

57 - 6 = 51 letters available for the 2 that didn't letter in all 3 sports.

46 - 2 = 44 total students left.

51 - 44 = 7 that lettered in 2 sports.

Re: Problem Solving Math Help

So 7 got 2 letters = 14 letters total.
2 got 3 = 6 letters total.
37 got 1 letter = 37 letters total.

46 students = 57 awards
