16 students took a test. Their average score was 77. At least how many more students must take the test to raise the average to up 84, if the maximum score possible on the test is 88?

2. Relevant equations

Average = Total / Number of people

3. The attempt at a solution

I have nowhere to start. Took a practice SAT and there were two of these problems and I'm really worried. I have a low GPA (3.9) and I need an asian score on the SAT to get into UCSD.

I tried doing 84 = Total score / Number of students but I'm stuck on the total score and number of students ?_?
