how

All you have to do is take the initial weight minus the weight after the 10 days and divide by the number of days this will show approximately how much flour was used each day

  • Kash_TheSmartGuy
First, subtract 86 from both sides. \[(86-86)+10x=25.2-86.\]

  • moazzam07
x= 6.08?
moazzam07
  • moazzam07
or 68?
taramgrant0543664
  • taramgrant0543664
6.08 is the answer!
Kash_TheSmartGuy
  • Kash_TheSmartGuy
It would be 6.08

thanks @Kash_TheSmartGuy and @taramgrant0543664
Kash_TheSmartGuy
  • Kash_TheSmartGuy
But @taramgrant0543664 , he needs an equation to further explaining

It is 6.08 pounds each day
Kash_TheSmartGuy
  • Kash_TheSmartGuy
First, subtract 86 from both sides. \[(86-86)+10x=25.2-86.\] do this
moazzam07
  • moazzam07
ok you want me to 25.2 - 86 = -60.8
Study_together
  • Study_together
first you subtract 25.2 from 86. you get 60.8. you do 60.8/10
moazzam07
  • moazzam07
yes i solved it
moazzam07
  • moazzam07
I get it now
Kash_TheSmartGuy
  • Kash_TheSmartGuy
Good! Now do this\[\frac{ 10x }{ 10 }=\frac{ -60.8 }{ 10 }\]
Kash_TheSmartGuy
  • Kash_TheSmartGuy
Good job! @moazzam07
taramgrant0543664
  • taramgrant0543664
@Kash_TheSmartGuy your equation is wrong you should have 25.2+10x=86
moazzam07
  • moazzam07
60.8 / 10 = 6.08
Study_together
  • Study_together
and you have your answer
Kash_TheSmartGuy
  • Kash_TheSmartGuy
No @taramgrant0543664 as the equation will result in 25.2 instead of start with it
taramgrant0543664
  • taramgrant0543664
@Kash_TheSmartGuy -60.8/10 is a negative number not the positive number you are looking for
Kash_TheSmartGuy
  • Kash_TheSmartGuy
Sorry, there's a problem. In my equation it should be divided by -10 instead of 10.
taramgrant0543664
  • taramgrant0543664
It could also be 86-10x=25.2 but you had a + after the 86
Kash_TheSmartGuy
  • Kash_TheSmartGuy
So, you get a positive answer. Final Answer: 6.08
