  2. 3 x do baseball
    8 x do soccer

    so
    8 x = 56
    x = 7 so 3*7 = 21 do baseball

    The rest makes no sense to me. I do not know what the rest of the 1322 students said.

  3. let number of students choosing soccer be 8x,
    and the number of students choosing baseball be 3x

    8x = 56
    x = 7
    so students choosing soccer is 56
    students choosing baseball is 21

    note: 56+21 =77, so as was noted, how does the 132 enter the picture
