    algebra is difficult but its easier if you attempt guesses first and try to understand whats going on: "for each item" means multiplication times a variable, and you know what minus means... so write something down in mathematical symbols that shows that

    perfect; although sometimes they like to talk about "each item" in terms of x, so you may want to switch the spots of x and y
