    Two of the top-grossing concert tours were by a jazz band and a rock band. Together, the two tours visited 177 cities. The jazz band visited 99 cities more than the rock band.

    How many cities did each group visit?

    Jazz band?

    Rock band?

    Ready, go!

    177-99=78. 78/2=39. 99+39=138 jazz cities. 39 rock cities. East stuff.

    Formula for this type of math question:

    x + (x + 99) = 177

    Below is the solution:

    x = 39

    then

    (x + 99) = (39 + 99) = 138

    39 (rock band visits) + 138 (jazz band visits) = 177 (total)
