now you need to set up a system of equations to solve
the first one is u+n=18
i got that then i divided it by .2 but it didn't fit
try to turn the sentence-form information they give you into a math equation
divided what by .2? did you understand the idea of a system of equations?
the 18 because it said that had 1/5 as many territories...sorry meant multiplied 18 by .2
basically if you have two variables, you need two equations to work with to solve for the variables
1/5 as many territories as the UK
not 1/5 as many territories as 18
opps
norway has 1/5 as many as the uk.
norway = 1/5 * uk
n = 1/5 * u
sorry we just start algebra and the teacher didn't explain this and i couldnt find an example in the book
don't be sorry, it's no problem
now that you have n+u=18 and n=1/5 * u, you want to substitute n back into the first equation so you have only 1 variable to work with
i'm so confused :(
would it be 1/5 * u+u=18 or 2u=18-1/5 or something like that
are you still able to help me
thanks for your help i will ask the teacher thank you i have to go to bed
