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.

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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You would not have been able to do (n3) because that would mean number of wallets minus $3
