    Answer: Number of games lost = 23 and Number of games won = 59.

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Let x = Number of games lost, y = Number of games won.

    y = 13 + 2x    (i)

    x+ y = 82    (ii)

    Substitute value of y from (i) in (ii) , we get

    x+ 13 + 2x  = 82

    ⇒ 3x= 82-13

    ⇒ 3x = 69

    ⇒  x= 23      [Divide both sides by 3]

    Put value of x in (i), y= 13+2(23) = 13+46=59

    Hence, Number of games lost = 23 and Number of games won = 59.
