Storyboard Text

  • 1/2 of the team times a number plus 8 (the number of players missing due to injury/suspension) equals 22, the number of players at the game. How many players are on the team total (x)?
  • First you must write down the equation then use inverse operation by making plus 8 minus 8, and to be balanced/fair, you have to do it to the other side (subtract 8 from 22)
  • Then you simplify by making 1/2x, 1x by multiplying by it's reciprocal (1/2 times 2/1 = 1x
  • You must do the same to the other side by dividing 22 minus 8 by 1/2x's reciprocal (14/1 times 2/1 =28/1
  • You then simplify 28/1 by making it 28
  • You then get the answer x=28
  • There are a total of twenty eight players on the team
