Math is really that Simple. By: Leonardo Lopez
Sure, But first lets find a place to sit.
OK, But you will help.
Kelly, Laura, and Tia sold boxes of cookies for a fundraiser. Kelly sold 15 boxes less than Laura. Tia sold twice as many boxes as Kelly. If they sold 83 boxes of cookies in total, how many boxes did Laura sold?
Thats a hard questions but the answer is x=32
Well First what you have to do is turn it into an equation which is x-15+x+2(x-15)=83 Then you use distributive property the it turns into x-15+x+2x-30=83 the you combine like tersm x+x+2x=83+30+15
How did you do that?
Then you just add them up and it would be, 4x=128 Finally you just divide the numbers. x=32
Nice I think I get it now.
No problem hope you will get it next time.
Thanks for everything you were a good help.
