Best Answer

Let b be the number of boys, then:

girls + boys = total

→ 2928 +b = 4209

This is your number sentence, which is solved using algebra collecting numbers on one side and the letter on the other:

2928 + b = 4209

→(2928 - 2928) + b = 4209 - 2928

→ b = 1281

→ there are 1281 boys competing.

What agreement problem does this sentence exhibit A You were down by the river when you see a coyote B Maria and Tomas goes to the swimming pool?

In the first sentence, there is a problem in verb tense, because "were" is past tense, but "see" is present tense. In the second sentence, there is a problem in number, because "Maria and Tomas" is plural and needs a plural verb, but "goes" is singular.
