**Equation 1:**

**x+y=62**

*(all of the time slots are either on Saturday which is x or Sunday which is y)*

**Equation 2:**

**x=y+14**

(There are 14 more Saturday than Sunday slots so whatever Sunday is which is y plus 14)

Now plug

**Equation 2**into**Equation 1.**(x)+(y)=62....--> (y+14)+(y)=62

2y+14=62 now subtract 14 from each side

2y=48 now divide each side by 2

**y=24.**

Now plug in our y to the first equation.

x+y=62...---> x+24=62 now subtract 24 from each side

**x=38.**

You can now test the values

x+y=62

38+24=62 and there are 14 more time slots for Saturday than Sunday.
