FAN AND MEDAL!!! PLZ HELP ME!! Mike packed an equal number of flashlights in each of x gift boxes. The number of compartments in each gift box was 3 more than the number of boxes. The number of flashlights in each compartment of a box was 2 more than the number of compartments in each box. The expression below shows the total number of flashlights that Mike packed in all the boxes: x(x + 3)(x + 5) Which expression shows the number of compartments in each gift box? x + 3 x + 5 (x + 3)(x + 5) x(x + 3)(x + 5)

    The number of compartments in each gift box was 3 more than the number of boxes.

    if the number of gift boxes is \(x\) then the number of compartments in each gift box is 3 more than \(x\) aka \(x+3\)

    So, let's say there were 3 boxes. This would mean x = 3. The number of compartments in each box would be 5, and the number of flashlights in each compartment would be 8.

    The answer is x+5

    Multiply 8 by the number of compartments in each box (5) and we get 40. Plug x = 3 into each equation, and see which one comes out to 40

    the number of compartments in each box would be 6, which would mean the solution would be 48

    (x + 3)(x + 5) <--- would be your final conclusion :)
