#### This past Sunday, the Giants scored 9 points less than twice the Cowboys. The Packers scored 14 more points than the Giants. If the teams scored 81 total points, find the number of points scored by the Packers.

**Answer:**

43 points

**Step-by-step explanation:**

let the score of Cowboys is x

and giants make score 9 which is twice less than the Cowboys score so

giants score will be = 2x -9

and packers scored 14 more than giants that is (2x – 9) + 14

now the sum of their scores is equal to 81 it means:

x + (2x – 9) + (2x -9) + 14 = 81

x + 2x – 9 + 2x – 9 + 14 = 81

5x = 81 + 4

5x = 85

x = 17

packers scored = (2x – 9) + 14

= 2 (17) -9 + 14

=38 + 5 = 43 points
