Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0All 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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0First, subtract 86 from both sides. \[(8686)+10x=25.286.\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0first you subtract 25.2 from 86. you get 60.8. you do 60.8/10

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Good! Now do this\[\frac{ 10x }{ 10 }=\frac{ 60.8 }{ 10 }\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@Kash_TheSmartGuy your equation is wrong you should have 25.2+10x=86

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0No @taramgrant0543664 as the equation will result in 25.2 instead of start with it

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@Kash_TheSmartGuy 60.8/10 is a negative number not the positive number you are looking for

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Sorry, there's a problem. In my equation it should be divided by 10 instead of 10.

taramgrant0543664

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0It could also be 8610x=25.2 but you had a + after the 86
