- AriPotta

ohhh

- AriPotta

128(10) = 1280
16(x) = 16x

- AriPotta

1280/16 = 80

- AriPotta

so 80 - 10 = 70. he's adding 70 white balls

- AriPotta

is this making sense?

- anonymous

why are you subtracting 10 again?

- AriPotta

because x is the total number of white balls AFTER adding. and 10 is the number of white balls already in there. we have to subtract the original from the new

- AriPotta

to see what was added

- anonymous
