Sachin scored twice as many runs as Rahul. Together, their runs fell two short of a double century. How many runs did each one score? Please give the steps also and the equation

let rahul's score be y

rahul's score = y

sachin's score is twice as many runs as rahul = 2y

their runs fell two short of a double century = 198

therefore, rahul's score = 2y + y = 198

= 3y = 198

= y = 198/3

= y = 66

therefore, sachin's score = 66 multiplied by 2

= 132
