The answer is 12.If we represent the car in this way:a Black car = 23Red cars B = 9Blue car C = 17White cars D = 25Silver cars E = 21Then sum of white and blue, the car is D + C = 25 + 17 = 42 the sum of the silver and the red car is, And a + B = 21 + 9 = 30Using the subtraction:(D+C) - (E+B) = 42 - 30 = 12Therefore, there are 12 more white and blue cars than silver and red cars.
