10-113.

The Math Club is baking pies for a bake sale. The fruit-pie recipe calls for twice as many peaches as nectarines. If it takes a total of $168$ pieces of fruit for all of the pies, how many nectarines are needed?

Write two equations where $p=$ peaches (#) and $n=$ nectarines (#).

Write one equation that relates $p$ to $n$. Write another equation about the total of $168$ pieces of fruit.

$56$ nectarines are needed.
