The total cost for 8 bracelets, including shipping was $54. The shipping charge was $6. Define your variable and write an equation that models the cost of each bracelet. Is this wrong or right? x8 y54 -$6 -8 -8 54 -14 = 40 40/8 = 5

    I'm unsure of what you are doing but I'll show you how I would do it. Since there is only one shipping charge we don't need to give it a variable. Together the shipping ant the eight bracelets equal 56. I will let x represent the price of one bracelet and since there is 8 I will multiply x by 8. So my equation will be: 8x+6=56 8x=50 x=6.25
