Shannon sells handmade wallets for $12 each.
Yesterday, she sold n wallets. Today, she sold 3 less wallets than yesterday.
Over the past two days, she earned a total of $396.
Drag and drop terms and an operation to create an equation that models the situation. Then, solve for n, the number of wallets Shannon sold yesterday.
12n + 3
n - 3
n - 3
n + 3

Alright, so we know that the total is 396, so that needs to go on the left side of your equation
Which one would you think you would put in for "todays" profits?
Yesterdays is easier, so start with "yesterday"
She sold "n" wallets yesterday for $12 each
So Yesterday is really 12n
Scratch that, I just reread the question
Your answer is: 396 - 12n = 3n
You get this answer because we are solving for "Yesterday". You would need to subtract "Today" from the total. In addition, she sold 3 more wallets "Yesterday" so you would need to factor in that.
You would not have been able to do (n-3) because that would mean number of wallets minus $3
