Problem

A football game was played between two teams, the Cougars and the Panthers. The two teams scored a total of 34 points, and the Cougars won by a margin of 14 points. How many points did the Panthers score?

$\mathrm{(A) \ } 10\qquad \mathrm{(B) \ } 14\qquad \mathrm{(C) \ } 17\qquad \mathrm{(D) \ } 20\qquad \mathrm{(E) \ } 24$

Solution

Let $x$ be the number of points scored by the Cougars, and $y$ be the number of points scored by the Panthers. The problem is asking for the value of $y$.

$x+y=34$

$x-y=14$

$2x=48$

$x=24$

$y=10 \Rightarrow A$
