The flat rate will not have an x. The rate that increases based on the number of hours will have the x. The amount total paid will be on the other side of the equation.
i dont get it................
This is what they give us: \[?x + ? = ?\] \[x = ?\]
Now which would most likely be to the left of the x? $12 or $5
Wait, no 5.
$12 is only a one-time payment to rent the horse for the day. $5 would be to the left because its $5 per hour (x = per hour).
Yes, $5 would be there
So now, substitute the $12 and the $5 into that equation.
done with that.
Can you show me what you did?
That is correct, except you forgot the $37 at the end.
oh. ok done with that to.
Ok, now we need to solve the equation that we made: \[5x + 12 = 37\] \[x = ?\] Can you solve that ^
x = 5, because 5 times 5 = 25, and 25 + 12 = 37. :)
That is correct
I would love to help more, but OS is really laggy at the moment. I can barelly type. Sorry :(
