\(\to\) Two baseball league players got a total of 366 hits. Washington has 12 more hits than Sanchez. Find number of hits for each player

\((x+12)+x=366\)

Solve for x:

\(2x+12=366\)

Subtracting 12 from both sides

\(2x=354\)

Divide both sides by 2

\(x=177\)

Washington had 189 (177+12)

Sanchez had 177 hits
