translate the following into an equation, do NOT slove....
Cheryl's commute is 4.5 miles further than Joanna's. Matthews commute is 21 miles less than 5 times times Joanna's commute. If their average commute is 13 miles, how far is Joanna's commute?
Is my answer even close???
Joanna's commute will be x
x + x + 4.5 + x * 5  21 divided by 3
