This storyboard does not have a description.
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
