I don't understand this

A textbook store sold a combined total of 340 sociology and math textbooks in a week. The number of sociology textbooks sold was 58 more than the number of math textbooks sold. How many textbooks of each type were sold?

x + (x-58)=340 x+x-58=340 2x-58=340 2x=398 x=199 I really hope this helps and i hope you get a good grade on your assignment.
