You, again. Hello person :)

Let d represent the number of dandelions

Let l represent the number of lilies

1) l+ d= 55 He has a total of 55 flours

2) d= l+ 19 He has 19 more dandelions than lilies

Now, I am going to substitute l+19 for d into equation #1 above.

1) l + d = 55

l + (l+ 19)= 55 Combining like terms

2l + 19 = 55

-19 -19

2i = 36. Dividing by 2

l= 18

He has 18 lilies and 37 dandelions.

Bye, Mimi
