ohhh

128(10) = 1280 16(x) = 16x
AriPotta
  • AriPotta
1280/16 = 80
AriPotta
  • AriPotta
so 80 - 10 = 70. he's adding 70 white balls

is this making sense?
anonymous
  • anonymous
why are you subtracting 10 again?
AriPotta
  • 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
  • AriPotta
to see what was added
