Accepted Solution

A:

Answer:(m) + 2 (m) - 7 = 32 is the needed expression.Points scored by Pittsburgh Steelers = 13Points scored by New Orleans Saints = 19Step-by-step explanation:Let us assume the points scored by Pittsburgh Steelers = mSo, the Points scored by New Orleans Saints = 2 (Points scored by Pittsburgh Steelers ) - 7 = 2 (m) - 7Also,the total points scored by both teams = 32So the points scored by( New Orleans Saints + Pittsburgh Steelers) = 32⇒ (m) + 2 (m) - 7 = 32or, 3 m = 32 + 7 = 39⇒ m = 39/ 3 = 13, or m = 13So, the points cored by Pittsburgh Steelers = m = 13and the points scored by New Orleans Saints = 2m - 17 = 2(13) - 7 = 19
