hi Samk45

Welcome to the forum.

These look like word problems after learning about solving simultaneous equations.

So construct a pair of equations from the given information and then use what you have learnt to solve them.

eg.

Q14. There are two types of rose, so let's call the number of red roses 'r' and the number of pinks 'p'.

There are 288 altogether so the first equation is

r + p = 288

There are 36 fewer reds so the second equation is

p - r = 36

Can you finish this off from here?

I'm so bad at math so i can't finish this off from here. I have the same task. I need another online consultation from [link removed - zetafunc]. They always help me with math homework and I'm very satisfied with their work. I hate calculations and don't have enough time to learn how to do it in the right way.

hi sahrenity

Welcome to the forum.

When I help folk on the forum, my aim is to help them to understand what to do so they can do it themselves. I'm not a 'do your homework for you' service.

If you want my kind of help, then please start by showing me (1) an easier question and how you did it, and (2) the first one where you are stuck.
