Storyboard Text

• 3x+2=20
• One day Francis went to the candy store. She bought 20 pieces of candy to give out on purim.
• 3x+2=20
• -2
• -2
• Francis wanted to divide all of her candy into 3 bags. She also wanted to save 2 pieces for herself. She thought to herself, how many pieces would go in each bag?
• 3x=18
• 6
• She created the following equation. 3x+2 = 20. The 3 was for the number of bags, the x was the number of candies in each bag, and the 20 was the total number of candies
• She subtracted the 2 from both sides to get rid of it. She ended up with 3x=18
• 3x=18
• Then, she divided 3 from 3x and then divided 3 from 18. The 3x is now gone and we are left with 6.
• Francis then realized that there were exactly 6 pieces of candy to be put in each bag. Thank you math!
