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. 15 12n + 3 + 396 396 3n n - 3 n - 3 n + 3 12n

    Alright, so we know that the total is 396, so that needs to go on the left side of your equation

    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
