Let's denote the number of hotdogs sold as x. Since the number of sodas sold is 55 more than the number of hotdogs sold, we can express the number of sodas as x + 55.
Given that the total number of sodas and hotdogs sold is 149, we can set up the equation:
x + (x + 55) = 149
Solving this equation:
2x + 55 = 149 2x = 149 - 55 2x = 94 x = 47
So, 47 hotdogs were sold. To find the number of sodas sold, we can substitute x=47 into x + 55
Number of sodas = 47 + 55 = 102
Therefore, 102 sodas were sold.
