Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0It's there in the question, but you have to read it very carefully. Now, during the afternoon the station played 10 songs every hour. If the listener listened for x hours, how many songs would they hear?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Remember, we don't know that the listener listened for 14 hours. We're told the listener listened for \(x\) hours. What do you think?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0but it says prior to ten am they played songs for the rest of the day and the day ends at 12am thats why i assumed 140. I am honestly stumped

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0That's OK. For however long the person listened, they heard 10 songs every hour. If the person listened for 1 hour, they heard 10 songs. If the person listened for 2 hours, they heard 20 songs. If the person listened for 3 hour, they heard 30 songs. What if the person listened for \(x\) hours? What do you have to do to the number of hours to get the number of songs?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0because its a pattern and the problem says the pattern so if they listeneed for 5 hours they heard 50 songs?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Great. That's what I was after. So, if you know how many hours the person listened, you would multiply that number by 10 to get the number of songs they heard

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Using that same thinking, what if the person listened for \(x\) hours. How many songs would they hear?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Well, this is an algebra question. It assumes that you know how to do this type of multiplication. If you examine the answers, you will see the correct one based on all the work that' we've done. What do you think?
