The problem is worded very poorly. "Value" implies cot, yet there are no costs per pizza or sandwich given. You have to mentally translate the best you can.

The number of sandwiches we order is always twice the quantity equal to four less the number of pizzas.


S = 2 * (4 - P)

S= number of sandwiches

P= number of pizzas

Plug 62 for S and solve for P.

Isn't the original wording four less than the number of pizzas, i.e., (P - 4)?

I think that's how Rougee got 35.
