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

    The total number of games = number of games won + number of games lost + number of games tied

    But since we aren't given any info about tied games we can cancel that term out. What does that leave us with?

    Right, the equation becomes Total games = number of games won + number of games lost

    well if we subtract the games one from the total it will give is num of games lost

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