"number of male students was 1 more than 7 times the number of adults" - How would you write this a expression.
7x+1 ?
GOOD!
"The number of female students was half the number of male students." - Now we have an expression for the number of male students, do the samething for female
is it 7x+1/2 ?
YAY!
"If the total number of people who went on the trip is 82"- We know the number of adults which is X and also have expressions for male and female... so what do we do now ?
this is where i am stuck, do i add them both together and them set it equal to 82? i get stuck here
YAY!
would the equation look like this: 7x+1+7x+1/2=82
Where did the Adults go?
aren't they the x
yes, but they're not aliens... they're human.. better add them to the equation
haahaha i don't know where to put the x though
X+(1+7x)+(1+7x)/2
TA DA!
Can you solve for x given the other side is 82
|dw:1435958089976:dw|
ok lemme try solving that i don't think idid it right, i got 7
lemme check.
YAY!
There are 7 adults, however they ask the number of male and female students. We already have the 2 equations
so i plug 7 into each individual equation?
YES!
ohh ok ok gotcha. thank you so much!!!!!!!
so the number of male students is 50, and female is 25
but that doesn't add up to 82, where did i go wrong here
You're treating adults as aliens again...
what do you mean?
50+25+7 humans
oohhh ok ok thank you!!! ....again ahaha
