• ﻿Hi Margaret
• Hi John, Can i ask you a quick question? ﻿
• 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.
