Christmas tree equation

Λίγο πριν τα Χριστούγεννα οι μαθητές έψαξαν στην αποθήκη του σχολείου να βρουν τα περσινά χριστουγεννιάτικα δέντρα και να στολίσουν τις 17 αίθουσες του σχολείου. Βρήκαν 6 πράσινα, 8 χιονισμένα και μερικά άσπρα. Πόσα ήταν τα άσπρα δεντράκια;
(να λυθεί με εξίσωση)

Few days before Christmas some pupils went down the school’s basement to find last year’s Christmas trees. They wanted to decorate the 17 study rooms of their school. In the basement they found 6 green trees, 8 trees with fake snow on them and some white trees. How many are the white trees?
(you should solve it using an equation)

Merry Christmas everyone and happy new year 
from the pupils of 6th grade, 13th primary school of Drama, Greece
