we need a variable for the first number you pick
what do you pick?
lol no imagination, i would have picked \(\spadesuit\) but \(x\) will do
if the first number is \(x\) and the second number is three times that, how you would write three times \(x\)?
i am doing this on a website called mineracademy. owschool.com and it wont let me use that type of stuff only regular keyboard stuff so....yea
how would you write three times x?
then how would you write (this is the only hard part) ten less that two times x ?
yeah i thought this was the hard part, so lets go slow
if x was 40 then ten less than two times x would be ten less than 80 i.e 70
first multiply by 2, THEN subtract 10
dude i am in 9th grade that part wasn't so hard my top classes are economics and english in 8th grade in reading on my Iowa test i got the adverage of a 12th grader.
economics i never even heard of in 9th grade in any case "ten less than two times x" would translate as \[2x-10\]
now add them up and set the result equal to \(92\) i.e solve \[x+3x+2x-10=92\]
