    Answer:

    Let point’s possessed by school A = x

    and point possessed by School B = y

    And the statement given Regarding the school are :

    School X has eight more points than School Y. School X has three times as many points as School Y .

    Writing these statements in terms of equation

    1.   x = y + 8

    2.  x = 3 y

    Substituting the value of x in y, we get

    3 y = y + 8

    Taking variable on left side of equation

    3 y – y = 8

    2 y= 8

    y =  

    As , x= y + 8 gives x = 4 + 8 = 12

    Point possessed by School A = 12 points

    Points possessed by school B =  4 points
