Choose the equation that models the problem. Zach's baseball team won 32 games last season. They played a total of 45 games. How many games did they lose overall? Let l represent the number of games that Zach's team lost. A. l – 32 = 45 B. l + 32 = 45 C. l + 45 = 32 D. 32l = 45

Right, the equation becomes Total games = number of games won + number of games lost
trwatkins1
  • trwatkins1
well if we subtract the games one from the total it will give is num of games lost

  • JoannaBlackwelder
True, but the answers aren't solved for number of games lost. Let's just plug in the number we know for now.
