You are a member of your local movie theater’s club. Every time you see a movie at the theater, you earn 2 advantage points. When you earn 100 points, you get a free movie pass. Currently, you have 40 advantage points.
Write an equation to model the number of movies m you have to watch before you earn a free movie pass.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3Current number of points = 40 Points needed = 100  40 = 60 For every movie, you get 2 points. So for 60 points you need to watch 60/2 = 30 movies. Try doing it now.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3So the equation would be: \[m = \frac{ 100  40 }{ 2 }\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3Well, you can write the same equation in many ways like the one I have given above. However, I would suggest you go with this one: \[2m = 60\]
