ebydaqueen17 3 years ago THE VERIZON WIRELESS MESSAGE PACK INCLUDES 200 TEXT MESSAGES PER MONTH FOR \$5.00. ADDITIONAL TEXTS ARE \$0.15 EACH. IF BERMA WILLIAMS USES THIS PLAN, HOW MANY TEXT MESSAGES CAN SHE PURCHASE FOR \$20.00?

1. TAKEBACKMATH

subtract 5 from 20

2. TAKEBACKMATH

leaving 15 right?

3. ebydaqueen17

RIGHT

4. ebydaqueen17

BUT COULD U SHOW ME HOW THE EQUATION WILL LOOK

5. TAKEBACKMATH

5 +0.15x=20

6. TAKEBACKMATH

5 + 0.15 x = 20 \$5 plus (per text cost) times (the number of texts) is \$20
