Sammy reads the same number of pages from his book each night. The expression 228 – 12x shows how many pages he has left to read on any given night.
What does the constant in the expression represent?
the total number of pages Sammy has read so far
the total number of pages in Sammy's book
the number of pages Sammy reads each night
the total number of nights Sammy has been reading

- anonymous

sup bro ^_^

Do you have any idea how to answer these? let's break these down into parts. The first question is asking what the constant tells you.. To answer that, you must first be able to establish what the constant is. Can you identify that?

12x?

- BloomLocke367

No :/ The constant is the number that is separate from a variable. Try again :D

- PatrickWeeWoos

228

Need more help bro?

- PatrickWeeWoos

Yeah i suck at these!

- BloomLocke367

Yes! do you understand why?

- BloomLocke367

And notice, it doesn't ask what it is, it asks what it represents. The constant never changes.. what would be the only number that would not change for that type of problem (remember, he's reading a book. what wouldn't change about that)

- PatrickWeeWoos

Umm..No!

- BloomLocke367

well.. what don't you understand about it? :)

- PatrickWeeWoos

The total number of pages!

- PatrickWeeWoos

That obviously cant change!

- BloomLocke367

yes! there you go! you got the first question done :D

Sammy reads the same number of pages from his book each night. The expression 228 – 12x shows how many pages he has left to read on any given night.
What does the number 12 in the second term represent?
the total number of pages Sammy has read so far
the total number of pages in Sammy's book
the number of pages Sammy reads each night
the total number of nights Sammy has been reading

- BloomLocke367

Do you have any ideas for this one?

- PatrickWeeWoos

C could be it!

- anonymous

Your wrong :/

- BloomLocke367

Yes it is! Do you understand why? :D

- BloomLocke367

@Captain_America_Army he is not wrong.

- anonymous

Oh I thought IT was A

- PatrickWeeWoos

Okay well its A then.....B is wrong!

- PatrickWeeWoos

And C is as well!

- BloomLocke367

Well thinking and knowing are two different things :D but everyone makes mistakes..
@PatrickWeeWoos it is not A..think about this. the 228 is for A.. so you can't have 2 of the same answer. You were correct when you said C.. do you understand why?

- PatrickWeeWoos

No 228 was for B

- BloomLocke367

right my bad sorry XD I looked at the wrong line. lol
but that isn't the point. Do you understand why C, and only C, is correct?

- PatrickWeeWoos

No xD

Sammy reads the same number of pages from his book each night. The expression 228 – 12x shows how many pages he has left to read on any given night.
What does the term 12x represent?
the total number of pages Sammy has read so far
the total number of pages in Sammy's book
the number of pages Sammy reads each night
the total number of nights Sammy has been reading

- BloomLocke367

well the 12 is being multiplied by a variable (x) so you know it's something that is happening over a change of time (for this example anyways). AND you also know the amount he reads every night is the same so it has to be a solid number, not a variable. Does that make sense?

- BloomLocke367

I have to go, sorry! Good luck!

- PatrickWeeWoos

Mt answer choice is D!
