    as we know the answer of A is 50x +120 = 1620 here x is the number of days . so what we will do here to find part C we will just isolate x it will be 50x = 1620 -120 50x = 1500 x = 1500/50 x = 30 So he will spend 30 days on trip .

    For part B what we will do 50x +120= 1620 taking -120 on both sides 50x + 120 -120 = 1620 - 120 50x = 1500 now divide both sides by 50, we get x=30 this is your Part B
