Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2What you need to find is how much each of those paychecks is. you know that the salary for the year is 35,525 and you know that 725 of that is a bonus. So how would you put that into an equation?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Your variable is the amount per paycheck. Since there are 24 paychecks, you write it as 24x

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2To put it into an equation, you would put your total salary on one side and the amounts that you add up on the other. Do you know how that would be written?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Close. The total salary is the 33,525. So you would add all your paychecks and the bonus to get that number. It would be 33525=24x+725
