Accepted Solution

A:

Answer:33Step-by-step explanation:Here, d represents the number of push-ups Darnell completed during his previous personal best and k represent the number of push-ups Katie completed,β΅ According to the question,Darnell's current push ups = d + 8,Mia's push-ups Β = d,Katie push-ups = d + 6Again according to the question,d + 8 = 35 β d = 27,Hence, the number of push-ups completed by Katie, k = d + 6 = 27 + 6 = 33
