Suppose you spent $74.95 for a shirt and a jacket. The shirt cost $20.25. Solve the equation 20.25+j=74.95 to find how much you spent on the jacket.
You can work a simpler problem to estimate an answer. Use number sense to solve 20+j=75

360 = 18x if you divide by 18 you would get 20 because if 10 x 18 = 180 then 20 x 18 would be double that and 180 x 2 = 360
