The total number of albums sold on the first day=34

Step-by-step explanation:

Derive expressions for the number of albums sold

each day;

Let;

the total number of albums sold on the first day=x

the total number of albums sold on the second day=y

but,

total number of albums sold on the second day is twice the total number of albums sold on the first day, therefor=, y=2×x= 2 x

The total number of albums sold for the two days can be expressed as;

Total sales=number sold on the first day+number sold on second day

where;

Total sales=102

number sold on the first day=x

number sold on second day= 2 x

replacing;

(x+2 x)=102

3 x=102

x=102/3

x=34

The total number of albums sold on the first day=34
