We're not suppose to do it for you. (I don't want to get banned.) But we can help you figure it out on your own, OK?

Start here. If "I have 6" and he's talking about "twice as many", then how many is he talking about? (You subtract the "less" part from this number of boys.) How many is "just enough" for a baseball team? So how many is he needing to subtract from the "twice as many"? What does this tell you?

Please write back if you get stuck. Thnx.
