Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0s represents the weight of the boxes Steven lifted while Nathan carried 12 lb more than Steven. So what does this mean? It means you will have to use addition...(s + 12). This means that Nathan boxes are 12 more than s (Steven's boxes). And we know Nathan carried 13 boxes in total so we will have to place the 13 outside the parenthesis to later distribute. So the equation would be 13(s + 12).
