Here are the answer choices.
A. 1/2x + 3,200=26,300
B. 2x – 3,200 = 26,300
C. 1/2x - 3,200 = 26,300
D. x + 1/2x + 3,00 = 26,300
You tell me. Which expression indicates what?
That's what I need help figuring out. If someone can run me through the correct process.

The correct process is thinking about it.
If x is last year's population,
What does ½x mean?
What does 2x mean?
What does x + ½x mean?
1/2x= half of last years population?
2x= twice the amount of last years population?
x + 1/2x= last years population plus half last years population?
Knowing that, can we eliminate choices?
Yes we can eliminate A, B and C unless I'm mistaken. Also the 3,00 in D is suppost to be 3,200, but I made a typo.
Why are we eliminating A or C? Do they, or do they not refer to ½x?
Sorry I got confused lol. Let's eliminate B. What next?
I'm beginning to think it's A.
D starts with x and then add ½x - That's no good.
C starts with ½x, but subtracts 3200. -- That's no good.
B starts with 2x -- That's no good.
A starts with ½x and adds 3200. That's exactly what is needed.
Don't begin to think... Prove it!
