Lets say there were 6m climbers
so number of staff members = 14+m
But its given that
2(14+m) = 6m
28 + 2m = 6m
Hence m = 7.
could someone please help the following
A climbing centre has 14 fixed staff plus one additional staff member for every six climbers. There are twice as many climbers as staff. Find the number of
a climbers b staff
if a = climbers and b = staff and there are "twice as many staff as climbers" (keywords of the problem), then if we multiply the number of climbers by 2, then that's how many staff we have. Right? Hence, 2 times the number of climbers = the number of staff. Or better yet a=2b.
