#### Storyboard Text

• Hey Paul, I got you some treats﻿.
• ﻿﻿Sweet! What did you get?﻿
• ﻿I got 2 cookies and a few lollipops.
• Yum! That sounds so good. How much was it.﻿﻿
• ﻿The total cost was \$38. The two cookies were \$4 each and all the lollipops I got were \$3 each.
• ﻿How many lollipops did you get?﻿﻿﻿
• ﻿I am not really sure.
• ﻿its ok, we can figure it out by creating an equation.
• ﻿8+ 3x= 38
• ﻿﻿I only remember that each lollipop was \$3﻿
• ﻿﻿So, since you got 2 cookies for \$4 each(2x4=8). So we will add 8 to our equation. So if we don't know how many lollipops there are we will label it x. our equation is 8+3x=38﻿
• ﻿First we subract 8 from both sides﻿
• ﻿﻿Lastly we divide 30 by 3﻿
• ﻿﻿Yay! Thanks for helping me.﻿
• 8+3x=38 8+3x+38      -﻿﻿8=30 30/3=10 The answer is x=10
• ﻿﻿Let's solve this﻿
